At a press conference 18:00, they didn't have many details and are urging people to stay calm and not spread information that is not confirmed.

As of 23:00 Saturday night, 3 out of 90 patients have tested positive for radioactive poisoning at a local Fukushima hospital, according to NHK.

The Fukushima nuclear power plants are about 250km (160 miles) north-east of Tokyo.

The NHK English website has good updates that so far seem the most reliable source of information...
