 South Korea will send a large team of rescue workers to Japan Sunday night to help the neighboring country in rescue and recovery efforts in the wake of a devastating earthquake and tsunami, government sources said.

   The 102-member squad will depart for Japan at around 11:30 p.m. aboard an Air Force C-130 plane from a military airport in Seongnam, south of Seoul, the sources said.
