June 18, 2018 4:02 pm
A strong earthquake in Osaka, Japan has killed at least three people, including a child, and injured more than 200.
Airports in the area were closed for several hours, train lines interrupted and factories had to halt production.
The 6.1 magnitude quake did not trigger a tsunami warning and nuclear plants in the area are operating normally.
Japan lies in a particularly earthquake-prone region and accounts for around 20% of quakes worldwide of magnitude 6.0 or more.
