A 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck eastern Japan on Tuesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The tremors were registered at 18:49 local time (09:49 GMT,) 167 kilometers south-east of the city of Sendai in the Miyagi Prefecture.

The area was torn to shreds when an 8.9-magnitude quake occurred off Japan's north-east coast on Friday, sparking a powerful tsunami.

There is no information on casualties from today's quake.

Nearly 6,000 people have been reported dead after Friday's disaster and thousands are still missing. Aftershocks still continue to rattle the area.

A series of blasts that ripped through the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant have raised fears of a nuclear meltdown.
