TAKAJO, Japan - The tide is bringing in the bodies of more of the victims of Friday's earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

A Japanese police official says 1,000 bodies that had washed up on shore were found scattered today along the coastline.

Officials now say there are about 2,800 confirmed dead.

But in the province where the bodies were found today, the police chief estimates more
than 10,000 may have died.

Meanwhile, millions of survivors are facing a fourth night without water, food or heat in near-freezing temperatures.
