New 6.5 quake in Japan as country turns into mass graveyard

Another strong earthquake off the coast of Japan has rocked the already devastated country. Although a Tsunami warning that was issued following the new quake has since been cancelled. The 9 magnitude earthquake and ensuing tsunami which struck the country 2 and a half weeks ago, ravaging whole regions, is now estimated to have killed well over 10 thousand. Workers are still battling to contain radiation leaks at a nuclear plant severely damaged by the disaster. Japan's nuclear agency says levels of radioactive iodine in the sea near the plant have risen to almost two thousand times the usual level. And as that crisis looms, many are still struggling with the loss of loved ones.
