The Japan earthquake in Tokyo

The capital Tokyo was one of several cities of Japan shaken by dozens of subsequent aftershocks – some 15 minutes apart – culminating in several large shocks on both coasts of Honshu as the weekend started.

The Japanese government’s top spokesman, Yukio Edano, said the country was sending troops to the quake-hit areas as the self-defence force prepared 300 planes and 40 vessels for rescue operations.

Millions of homes were left without power and rescue services were dealing with numerous call-out following falling debris across Tokyo and other cities.
