A HUGE earthquake has rocked the New Ireland Island of Papua New Guinea.

The 6.7-magnitude quake struck at around 3.36am GMT at a depth of 21 miles (33 km), about 25 miles (40 km) southeast of the town of Taron.

No tsunami warnings were issued and there have so far been no reports of damage or casualties.

The tremor marks the third major earthquake in the Pacific in as many days.

On Wednesday, a 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck just off the North Korean coast in the Sea of Japan.

The quake was measured at 348.2 miles (560 km) below the seabed, and unlikely to cause any damage. Its epicentre was 125 miles (201 km) south-east of the North Korean city of Chongjin.

Pentagon spokesman Major Jamie Davis said initial indications show the earthquake is not the result of another nuclear test, but they will continue to monitor seismic activity.
