Japan's prime minister says the Group of Eight industrialized economies have endorsed cutting world greenhouse gases in half by 2050. Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda says the agreement was struck Tuesday during the G-8 summit in northern Japan.

Fukuda says the G-8 is also calling for individual countries to set mid-term targets for reducing the gases behind global warming.
