KUMAMOTO: A powerful earthquake hit southern Japan early on Saturday, killing at least seven and triggering a huge landslide in a region where nerves were already frayed after a series of powerful tremors over the past two days.
The earthquake hit after another strong one on the southwestern island of Kyushu on Thursday that killed nine people, injured hundreds and caused widespread damage, as rescuers continued searching for trapped survivors.
Saturday's quake sparked a fresh wave of destruction and injuries, as more buildings toppled and a bridge reportedly collapsed in the hard-hit city of Kumamoto.
Reports said that at least 440 people were injured in the latest quake, while a government spokesperson said scores were trapped or buried alive.
earth quakes occurring too frequently causing destruction and loss of lives very sad
