Japan: First search inside the exclusion zone

Japanese rescue crews have begun searching for victims of the 11 March earthquake and tsunami within a 10km zone around the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant.

Up to 1,000 bodies are thought to be in the area, but their retrieval has been delayed because of radiation fears.

Staff are working to bring the nuclear plant under control, after cooling systems at three reactors were knocked out by the quake.
