TOKYO (Kyodo) -- The website of a parliament-appointed panel investigating the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant became inaccessible on Wednesday night, panel officials said, blaming network problems experienced by a company that maintains computer servers for it.
Multiple websites hosted by the company are experiencing similar trouble, they said, with the company saying it has come under cyberattacks from overseas.
The investigation commission, led by Kiyoshi Kurokawa, a professor emeritus at the University of Tokyo, has been proactively disclosing information by streaming panel deliberations live on the Internet, for instance.
The commission is set to issue on Thursday a report on the causes and developments of the nuclear accident, while streaming live a news conference held by Kurokawa and other panel members.
