Toll from Japan disasters over 7,700

Japan’s police agency says 7,700 are dead and more than 11,600 are missing after last week’s earthquake and tsunami.

A week after the disasters devastated the northeast coast, the National Police Agency said Sunday that 7,700 people died and 11,651 were missing.

Some of the missing may have been out of the region at the time of the disaster. In addition, the massive power of the tsunami likely sucked many people out to sea. If the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami is any guide, most of those bodies will not be found.
