France on Sunday advised its nationals to leave the Tokyo area "for a few days" due to the risks of a possible fresh quake in Japan and problems posed by a damaged nuclear plant to the north.

Paris also advised its nationals to put off all non-essential travel to Japan in the wake of Friday's massive quake and devastating tsunami.
