Hunt continues for Japan survivors

Survivors sift through rubble in search of thousands still missing after quake and tsunami.

    Residents in northwestern Japan continue to struggle nearly a week after two natural disasters hit their country.

    Meanwhile, international organisations are helping Japan mobilise a massive relief effort.


    More than 5,600 people are confirmed dead and almost half a million have been displaced.

    And as survivors search for their loved ones, it is clear the country was not prepared for a disaster of this magnitude.
