Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Tens of thousands of people in Northern Japan remain homeless following the quake and tsunami that devastated its country. The city of Takata was hit particularly hard by tragedy. The town, home to 22,000 people before the tsunami, lost 2,000 in the disaster. BBC reporter Roland Buerk is in Takata, where the recovery process has begun.
