A woman weeps as she listens to the latest news on a transistor radio about the nuclear power plant explosion in Iwaki City in northeastern Japan. Hundreds of people, many affected by the explosion, others by the magnitude-8.9 quake, took shelter at the ad hoc shelter set up inside a local gymnasium about 30 kilometers from the nuclear accident.
