Earthquake hits Russia

A 7.5-magnitude has hit Russia.

The earthquake was focussed on Russia’s Kuril Islands on Wednesday.

The quake hit at a depth of 59km (37 miles) and prompted a tsunami warning that was later cancelled.

Officials reported no casualties or damage but said 400 residents of Severo-Kurilsk were taken to higher ground.

The four southernmost islands of the Kuril chain – Habomai, Shikotan, Etorofu, and Kunashiri – have been disputed between Moscow and Tokyo since the end of the second world war. The Kurils are known as the Northern Territories in Japan.
