A memorial service was held Sunday in Niigata Prefecture to mark the 10th anniversary of the deadly earthquake that killed 15 people and left more than 2,300 injured in the region that hosts the world’s largest nuclear power plant.

At the ceremony, jointly hosted by the prefecture, the city of Kashiwazaki and the village of Kariwa, residents and family members of the deceased observed a moment of silence at 10:13 a.m., the time when the quake struck.
