A rare public spat erupted Tuesday between the CIA and the US lawmakers meant to oversee its work, with the head of the agency angrily denying claims it spied on Senate staff. Senate Intelligence Committee chair Dianne Feinstein launched a fiery public attack on the Central Intelligence Agency, accusing it of improperly searching computers used by staffers investigating CIA interrogation methods. "I have grave concerns that the CIA's search may well have violated the separation of powers principles embodied in the United States Constitution," Feinstein said on the Senate floor. She alleged the CIA may have violated federal law as well as the executive order that bars it from domestic spying, but the agency's director John Brennan quickly denied the allegations.

Namie (Japan) (AFP) - Japan observed a moment of silence Tuesday to mark the third anniversary of the quake-tsunami disaster which swept away thousands of victims, destroyed coastal communities, and sparked the nuclear emergency that forced a re-think on atomic power. Survivors bowed deeply and joined hands at remembrance ceremonies in towns and cities around the disaster zone and in Tokyo, where Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko led tributes to those who died in Japan's worst peace-time disaster. Giant waves also crashed into the Fukushima nuclear plant, sparking reactor meltdowns and explosions, and setting off the worst atomic crisis in a generation. As night fell, an event in a Fukushima park saw about 2,000 lit candles arranged to read "Fukushima 3/11".
