Japanese community in shock after devastation

Jamaica Gleaner "The Japanese community in Jamaica is in shock following yesterday's disastrous 8.9 magnitude earthquake off the shore of Japan that triggered a 23-foot tsunami, which, up to press time, left 350 persons dead, 550 missing, and hundreds injured.

Japanese Ambassador Hiroshi Yamaguchi said: 'We have been closely monitoring the situation. All the teams working over there are trying to get things under control and trying to minimise the death toll.'
