New Delhi: A day after Japan was hit by
giant tidal waves caused by a massive earthquake which has
left 1600 people dead or unaccounted for there, India on Saturday
said that information available so far indicates that all its
nationals are safe.

"...spoke with our Ambassador in Tokyo. All Indians
safe acc (according) to presently available info. We have
about 100 in Sendai," Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao said
here.
Rao also tweeted that India has pledged to assist
Japan and that country would decide if it needed help.
According to reports, around 200 to 300 bodies were
found in Sendai`s Wakabayashi Ward.
As rescuers have not been able to completely access
the tsunami-hit areas with tsunami warnings still in effect,
the overall picture of the destruction remained unclear.
