Japan city struck by new earthquake
A powerful earthquake has struck near the southern Japanese city of Kumamoto, a day after a tremor there killed at least nine people.
The magnitude-7.1 quake at a depth of 10km (6 miles) hit at 01:25 on Saturday (16:25 GMT on Friday). A second - smaller - quake hit later.
A tsunami warning was issued, but has now been lifted.
Japan is regularly hit by earthquakes but stringent building codes mean that they rarely cause significant damage.
Thursday's magnitude-6.2 quake caused shaking at some places as intense as the huge earthquake that hit the country in 2011, Japan's seismology office said.

That quake sparked a huge tsunami and nuclear meltdown at a power plant in Fukushima.
Most of those who died in Thursday's quake were in the town of Mashiki in the Kyushu region in south-western Japan where an apartment building collapsed and many houses were damaged.
