Samoa's Ambassador to Japan Leiataua Kirifoti Eteuati says Samoan students studying in Japan have all been accounted for.

There are five students and eight trainees in Japan, but none in the Sendai area which was hit by last week's tsunami.

Leiataua says the Samoa Embassy in Tokyo has been in contact with all the Samoan students and trainees and they are safe.
