Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Pictures (March 11, 2011)

See and feel how people reacted on the damages and casualties created by the tsunami. Japanese people are very calm with this tragic event.

I love how you stole the National Geographic photos and placed your own URL on them without crediting NG. That constitutes theft, not fair use. FYI.

Jaret, thanks for the comment. I appreciate your concern to the original source of the pictures. If you didn't read my message above, here it is, "All images are credited to their respective owners".

If you didn't know the original source of this pictures, let me tell you. They originally come from the Reuters/AP. NG just republished those pictures and credited Reuters/AP as source of pictures. I already credited Reuters/AP above. You can also see the same pictures posted in bbc.co.uk.

Thanks and God Bless. I hope you feel the sadness of our countrymen in Japan who are victims of tsunami. Relatives of those victims in Japan badly needed information about the event.
