MANILA--The Philippine Embassy in Tokyo released the names of 42 Filipinos reported missing in Friday’s quake tragedy. It also announced that 22 Filipinos had been found safe in the area. The Philippines is prepared to deploy a 41-man search and rescue (SAR) team to earthquake-devastated Japan once it receives a go signal from the Japanese government.

Foreign Undersecretary Rafael Seguis said there had been no reports of Filipinos injured in the disaster zone in northeastern Japan where the embassy had deployed two teams to assist affected nationals.
