About 2,000 bodies were found Monday on two shores in Japan's Miyagi prefecture after last week's 9.0-magnitude quake and a massive tsunami, Xinhua reported.

About 1,000 bodies were found on a shore in Ojika peninsula and another 1,000 have been spotted on the shore of Minamisanriku town. The Miyagi prefecture in northeast Japan is one of the hardest-hit areas in last Friday's earthquake.

The findings will significantly increase the death toll, officials said.
