TOKYO -- Toyota Motor Corp. says it will suspend production in Europe for several days in April and May because of parts shortages following Japan's massive March earthquake and tsunami.

The world's No. 1 automaker said Wednesday that production at five European plants would be halted for several days in late April and early May.

The magnitude 9.0-earthquake and ensuing tsunami on March 11 destroyed auto parts factories in northeast Japan, causing severe shortages for Toyota and other automakers.
