A Buddhist monk pays respect to the victims of March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami in front of the ruined disaster control center of Minamisanriku town, Miyagi Prefecture, northeastern Japan, on September 11, 2011. The facility destroyed by the tsunami became a place to remember the disaster after its 20 staff members, including a young woman who had been urging residents to flee from the tsunami through a public-address system until the last moment, were washed away and killed.
