Latest in Japan's quake, tsunami, nuclear crisis

Japanese nuclear authorities suspect a reactor at the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant was breached. That could mean more serious radioactive leaks. Some work at the plant was halted to check levels. Hundreds of thousands of survivors remain camped out in schools and civic buildings two weeks after the tsunami and earthquake. Some 660,000 households do not have water and more than 209,000 do not have electricity. The official death toll passes 10,000 people Friday. Another 17,400 people are missing, though those figures probably have some overlap.
