SENDAI, JAPAN - MARCH 15: Members of a Korean rescue team walk through an area damaged by earthquake and tsunami after a 9.0 magnitude strong earthquake struck on March 11 off the coast of north-eastern Japan, on March 15, 2011 in Sendai, Japan. The quake struck offshore at 2:46pm local time, triggering a tsunami wave of up to 10 metres which engulfed large parts of north-eastern Japan. The death toll continues to rise with fears that the official death count could well reach up to 10,000 in "the most tragic event in Japanese history since World War Two".
