A STRONG earthquake has rocked Japan – raising the spectre of another giant tsunami.

An earthquake of magnitude 6.1 struck in the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of Japan, this morning.

The shaker – which is classed as “strong” – was near the island of Okinawa, which has a population of more than 1.4million.

Almost 16,000 people were killed by an earthquake off Japan’s coast in 2011.

The under-sea tremor – which has a similar depth to today’s quake – caused a tsunami, which led to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.

The epicentre was in the Pacific Ocean – between Japan, China, South Korea and the Philippines, which has a population of 100million.

The island of Taiwan – where 24million people live – is very near.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries in the quake, which hit at a depth of 21 miles, about 166 miles east of Okinawa.
