NATORI, JAPAN – March 11, 2017: Balloons in the shape of doves are released into the air during a memorial service for victims of the 2011 quake-tsunami disaster in Natori, Miyagi prefecture. Japan is marking on March 11 the sixth anniversary of the magnitude 9.0 quake which struck under the Pacific Ocean and the ensuing tsunami which left about 18,500 people dead or missing. The massive flow of water overwhelmed cooling systems at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, causing meltdowns in three of its six reactors in what was the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in 1986.
