Japan: Relatives bury loved ones in a mass grave

More victims of Japan's quake and tsunami have been buried in a mass grave in the devastated town of Higashimatsushima, as crematoriums are unable to keep up with mounting death toll.

Self Defence troops laid the coffins in a line, partitioned with slabs of wood.

Relatives waited patiently to lay flowers and pay their final respects.
