JAPAN QUAKE 7733.jpg

Shoes are lined up at the entrance to a refuge shelter in Iwaki City, northeastern Japan on 12 March, 2011. Around 300 people, many affected by an explosion at a nearby nuclear plant, others by Japan's biggest ever temblor on 12 March, took shelter at the ad hoc shelter set up inside a local gymnasium about 30 km from the nuclear accident.
