Japan earthquake: Death toll raised to 32by

TOKYO, Japan -- Japanese government officials have raised the death toll following a massive earthquake which hit north-eastern Japan Friday to 32. According to Prime Minister Naoto Kan, the 8.9-magnitude earthquake has caused "extensive damage".

A 10-metre tsunami wave triggered by the earthquake violently swept away cars and other objects in its path. The quake forced tens of thousands of people to evacuate their homes.

A tsunami warning has been issued for the Pacific region including the Philippines, Indonesia, Taiwan, the Pacific coast of Russia and Hawaii.

States along the U.S. west coast including California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia and Alaska are on Tsunami Watch.
