Japan to Set Up Group to Help Typhoon-Affected People

   Tokyo, Oct. 14 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Monday his government will set up a cross-ministry group to provide livelihood support for people afflicted by Typhoon Hagibis, which tore through central and eastern Japan on the weekend.
   At a meeting of a typhoon disaster response task force, Abe instructed government staff to make the utmost effort to rescue affected people and search for those unaccounted for.
   Noting that more than 30,000 people are in evacuation shelters, Abe said it is an urgent task for the government to make detailed responses to help them.
   He expressed concerns that effects of the typhoon on livelihood and economic activity may be prolonged.
   The cross-ministry response team will be headed by Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Kazuhiro Sugita and consist of ministry officials at the director-general level.
