The World Health Organisation's representative in China said on Wednesday that there is no evidence of any significant international spread of radiation from Japan's crippled nuclear site.

"The World Health Organization (WHO) would like to assure governments and members of the public that there is no evidence at this time of any significant international spread from the nuclear site," Michael O'Leary, WHO's representative in China, said in a statement.

"Rumours have been circulating by text messaging and other means of a threatening radiation cloud spreading across Asia and beyond from the damaged nuclear facilities in Japan," he added.

"Governments and members of the public are encouraged to take steps to halt these rumours, which are harmful to public morale."
