At least 3 killed in 6.1-magnitude Japan earthquake

A strong earthquake near Osaka, Japan, early Monday morning killed at least three people and injured at least 41, the Associated Press reported, citing local authorities. The 6.1-magnitude quake hit around 8 a.m., causing moderate damage, though some building were reported to be partially collapsed. No tsunami warning was issued. The Japan Times reported that nearby nuclear plants were undamaged, but bullet train lines and some freeways were shut down as a precaution, and nearly 180,000 households were without power.
