"Reporting from Sendai, Japan, and Beijing Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan told reporters on Sunday that his country was facing its most difficult challenge since World War II and called on his people to unite in the face of a devastating earthquake and tsunami and potential nuclear crisis.
"''This is the toughest crisis in Japan's 65 years of postwar history,'' Kan said during a televised news conference. ''I'm convinced that we can overcome the crisis.''
"The prime minister's remarks came on a day when search-and-rescue teams struggled to reach battered parts of the northeast obstructed by mud and debris and new fears emerged over a meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear complex."
