Japan tsunami: $50bn disaster relief budget unveiled


The Japanese government has unveiled a $50bn emergency budget for disaster relief after last month's earthquake and tsunami.

The budget will be used for providing temporary housing, restoring infrastructure and cash loans.

Tens of thousands of people and many businesses in Japan continue to be affected by the earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear disaster they triggered.
