Japan tsunami debris lands on US coast

Alaska, with its long coastline, likely to get most of debris still washing up two years after the disaster.

    It has been more than two years since a tsunami devastated parts of Japan's east coast, but debris is still washing up on beaches in North America.

    Alaska has thousands of kilometres of coastline and is likely to get most of it.

    Al Jazeera's Allen Schauffler reports from Montague island, off the Alaska coast.
