FILE PHOTO 17JAN95 - Traffic in the city of Kobe lies backed up alongside a section of twisted expressway destroyed by an earthquake in this January, 1995 file photo. An earthquake measuring 7.2 on the Richter scale devastated the city and surrounding areas in 1995, killing at least 6,430 people. Kobe has repaired much of the physical damage caused by the devastating quake five years ago, but many emotional scars after the disaster have yet to be healed.

Tokyo money brokers take a break before the start of afternoon trading after the U.S. currency tumbled to the 111 yen level in the morning session June 9. The dollar tumbled against the yen in Tokyo on the narrowing of the interest rate gap between the United States and Japan, and fears of renewed trade friction between the two countries, dealers said. At one point the dollar fell to 111.80 yen, its lowest since November 25, 1996, from its close of about 114.38 yen in New York June 6.
