Namie (Japan) (AFP) - Japan observed a moment of silence Tuesday to mark the third anniversary of the quake-tsunami disaster which swept away thousands of victims, destroyed coastal communities, and sparked the nuclear emergency that forced a re-think on atomic power.

Giant waves also crashed into the Fukushima nuclear plant, sparking reactor meltdowns and explosions, and setting off the worst atomic crisis in a generation. As night fell, an event in a Fukushima park saw about 2,000 lit candles arranged to read "Fukushima 3/11".

An emotional Oscar Pistorius became physically sick in court on Monday as he listened to harrowing testimony about the autopsy of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, whom he is accused of murdering. Sitting in the dock, the visibly shaken Paralympian retched and heaved into a blue bucket as a pathologist gave a detailed post-mortem account of the multiple bullet wounds Pistorius admits inflicting. University of Pretoria pathologist Gert Saayman said the double-amputee sprinter shot Steenkamp with "Black Talon" hollow-point bullets, which mushroom open like a jagged flower on contact to cause maximum tissue damage.
