Police say they have found another 200 bodies in quake-hit coastal areas in northern Japan.

A police official in Miyagi said Sunday authorities were recovering the bodies. The official declined to be identified, citing department policy. He declined to give further details.

Friday's 8.9 quake was the biggest to hit Japan since record-keeping began in the late 1800s and one of the biggest ever recorded in the world. It was followed by a massive tsunami.
