A manhunt is underway for criminals who looted millions from Japan's cash machines nationwide in an hourslong heist, officials and reports said Monday.Armed with fake credit card details from South Africa's Standard Bank, the thieves hit 1,400 convenience store ATMs in a coordinated attack earlier this month.The international gang members, reportedly numbering around 100 people, each made a series of withdrawals in less than three hours, Japanese media said.Japanese police declined to confirm the robbery, but Standard Bank acknowledged the heist and put its losses at around $19 million.
