>> An earthquake has hit Japan's second largest city, Osaka. Killing at least three people even though only minor damage has been reported so far. The 6.1 magnitude tremor came during the Monday morning rush hour. Local media say two of the deaths, including a child, were caused by a wall collapse.
A third person was killed by a bookcase. The quake brought much of Osaka to a standstill. Forcing people off trains and shutting down factories. It's also cut off natural gas for over 100,000 homes, and it's estimated that it might not be restored for up to 12 days. Luckily, there's been no tsunami warning trigger or damage reported at the country's nuclear power stations.
In 2011, an earthquake and the tsunami that followed killed 18,000 people and caused one of the world's worst nuclear disasters.
