Namie (Japan) (AFP) - Japan observed a moment of silence Tuesday to mark the third anniversary of the quake-tsunami disaster which swept away thousands of victims, destroyed coastal communities, and sparked the nuclear emergency that forced a re-think on atomic power.

As night fell, an event in a Fukushima park saw about 2,000 lit candles arranged to read "Fukushima 3/11".
