Japan: Online Archive for March 2011 Disasters to Open Thursday

The Japanese internal affairs ministry said Tuesday that it will open a Web site Thursday to allow people to search for photos and video clips related to the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disasters.

The online archive contains some 200,000 items related to the disasters, together with about two million items about other earthquakes and nuclear power.

The Web site is designed to pass down records of the disasters to future generations, help rebuild badly affected areas and take measures against disasters.

An English version of the site is also available.
