Powerful 7.0-magnitude earthquake rocks Tokyo

TOKYO (AFP) - A major 7.0-magnitude earthquake rocked Tokyo and surrounding areas on Sunday, Japan's Meteorological Agency said, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injury and no tsunami warning was issued.
The quake struck at 2.28pm (1.28pm Singapore time). Its epicentre was located near Torishima, an island about 560km south of Tokyo. It was about 370km deep.
The mid-afternoon quake swayed buildings in Tokyo but it did not disrupt the final of the Emperor's Cup football tournament under way at the National Stadium.
