At least 4 killed, 94 hurt, after 7.4-magnitude quake shakes east Japan


 At least four people have been killed and 94 injured after a powerful earthquake hit northeastern Japan, shaking buildings some 275 kilometres (170 miles) away in Tokyo and leaving hundreds of thousands without power including in the capital. 

 Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said four people had died and that the government would be on high alert for the possibility of further strong tremors over the next two to three days.

The Fire and Disaster Management Agency said earlier on Thursday that at least 94 people had been injured, including four seriously.
