Relatives of victims of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami bow to the altar as they offer chrysanthemums for the victims at the national memorial service in Tokyo. March 11 is the third anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated the northeastern part of the country and triggered the nation's worst nuclear accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in nearby Fukushima. The disaster left about 19,000 people dead and missing.
