Japan has been hit by a devastating earthquake and tsunami resulting in the loss of lives of hundreds of people and material damage. The number of victims is expected to raise. As if that were not enough harm, there seems to be problems with the cooling system of three nuclear power plants and there was a blast in one of them. The images of the situation there, broadcast widely by the media, are heartbreaking.
The Japanese army is engaged in relief operations in the affected areas. As disaster relief teams from around the world are going to Japan to offer some help, our thoughts and prayers are with the people suffering from this natural disaster.
