Japan Earthquakes


Rescuers battled harsh weather conditions Saturday in a race to rescue as many as 100 people still trapped or buried under collapsed buildings after Japan suffered its second powerful earthquake in as many days. Japanese media reported the death toll from the two quakes has reached 41, with nearly 2,000 others injured. Sarah Williams spoke with VOA correspondent Steve Herman in Tokyo.
