Japan is facing its worst crisis in the 65 years since the end of World War II, Prime Minister Naoto Kan said on Sunday, after the country was devastated by a huge earthquake and tsunami.

The situation at a quake-stricken atomic power plant also remains grave, Kan said, as engineers battled a nuclear emergency sparked by the massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake and the surge of water it triggered.
