5.1-magnitude quake hits off Japanese islands (via ST iPhone App)

TOKYO - A 5.1-MAGNITUDE earthquake struck off Japan's Bonin Islands on Sunday, the US Geological Survey said, but there were no immediate reports of damage or tsunami warnings issued. The undersea quake hit at a shallow depth of 9.9 kilometres, 77 kilometres west of Chichi-shima island at 8:58pm (1058 GMT, 6:58pm S'pore time), the USGS said. Around 20 per cent of the world's most powerful earthquakes strike Japan, which sits on the 'Ring of Fire' surrounding the Pacific Ocean. Thousands gathered last week to remember more than 6,400 victims of the huge earthquake that devastated Kobe in 1995, amid warnings from geologists that Japan was overdue another major quake. -- AFP
