Japan's lower house of parliament is dissolved

Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda of Japan dissolved the lower house of the country's parliament on Friday, setting the stage for general elections next month.

The move was made so that Noda could get support from the main opposition Liberal Democrat Party (LDP) for key legislation that would keep the government funded.
