• NEWLY-WEDS AMONG Japan landslide missing


    TOKYO: Details emerged on Tuesday of a newly-wed couple who had been expecting their first baby when huge mudslides engulfed their home in western Japan, as the number of confirmed deaths from the disaster hit 63. Desperate family members were praying for the almost impossible rescue of 28-year-old Minami Yuasa, who was expecting a baby boy in November, and her husband, Yasuhiro. The couple, who were married in October last year, lived in an apartment block that was swept away six days ago when tons of earth, rocks and trees thundered down the mountainside in Hiroshima at a reported 40 kilometers (25 miles) an hour.
