Taco of Turmoil

Buddhist monks offer prayers for victims of the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami at Kitaizumi beach in Minamisoma, Fukushima prefecture, some 25 km (15 miles) from the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant March 10, 2012, a day before the disaster’s one-year anniversary. The magnitude 9.0 earthquake on March 11, last year, unleashed a tsunami that killed about 16,000 and triggered the world’s worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl. About 326,000 people are still homeless and nearly 3,300 remain unaccounted for. (Yuriko Nakao/Reuters)#
