Back from the Dead: Astonishing Pictures Show How Japan Is Recovering Just Three Months after Tsunami
ASIA--PACIFIC, 13 Jun 2011
Japan’s economy shrank 0.9 percent in the first quarter but recovery is expected between July and September.
Just three months ago Japan was plunged into chaos after a cataclysmic earthquake sent a merciless tsunami crashing through towns and cities up and down the east coast.
The unforgiving tide of water obliterated tens of thousands of buildings, devouring almost anything in its path. Thousands of people died and hundreds of bodies have never been recovered.
The heart-breaking images of families desperately searching for loved ones amid the rubble of their homes sent shockwaves around the world.
Now, three months on, these images show the Japanese people remain undaunted by the havoc nature has wreaked on their homeland as step by step they rebuild their nation.
