Japan's stock markets plunge after earthquake

Friday's earthquake and tsunami have left parts of Japan's economy "frozen", but analysts forecast that it will bounce back later this year.

Some of the country's leading producers, including the world's biggest car maker, Toyota, have closed all of their plants in the country.

A senior government official admitted the economic impact of the disaster could be "considerable".
