March 9 (Bloomberg) -- On March 11, Japan will pause to remember the 15,854 confirmed dead and the 3,272 still missing after a magnitude-9 earthquake and ensuing tsunami hit the northern part of the country a year ago.
For a day, the country will be united in grief. That unity, however, belies the conflicts hampering the region as local and central governments fight over budgets, and health fears divide families. Bloomberg’s Stuart Biggs reports. (With reporting by Kanoko Matsuyama. Source: Bloomberg)
