TOKYO - Japanese news agency Kyodo News withdrew a startling story on Saturday of a young man pulled alive from the rubble eight days after a massive earthquake set off a 10-metre high tsunami that ripped through northeast Japan, killing thousands.

Doubts have been raised about the story, which has been broadcast widely by international media. Kyodo said the man in fact had been to an evacuation center already and returned to his ruined home when he was discovered by rescue workers.
