SENDAI, Japan - Hundreds of Japanese police wearing white radiation gear and blue gloves have been using their hands or small shovels today searching for bodies in the tsunami-ravaged area near a crippled nuclear plant.

Some of the police were mobilized from Tokyo as part of a determined effort to find thousands of people missing and presumed dead.

A strong aftershock late yesterday killed three people.

The 7.1-magnitude tremor was the strongest since the March 11 9.0 quake. It generated no tsunami and largely spared the region's nuclear plants.
