    Nearly a month after Japan’s 9.0 earthquake and tsunami, officials have finally begun searching for bodies in the area around the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. Almost 1,000 police officers and soldiers began the search, wearing head-to-toe protective gear. 15,000 people are still missing in Japan, with about 4,200 missing in the evacuation zone. Currently, rescue workers are injecting reactors No. 1-3 with nitrogen to prevent explosions.
