Some 400,000 told to evacuate in Japan amid Typhoon Phanfone

Japanese authorities have ordered the evacuation of almost 400,000 people in the central part of the country, hit by powerful Typhoon Phanfone.

More than 620 flights have been canceled and traffic has been suspended on the Shinkansen high-speed railways linking the capital Tokyo and Nagoya, and also other lines.

Three US troops were washed on the northern coast in Okinawa Island on Sunday. One of them was later found dead, while two others are believed to have gone missing.
