Moderate quake on San Andreas fault shakes central Calif.

san andreas faultA moderate earthquake on California's San Andreas fault shook the central coastal area of the state early Tuesday.

The quake measured 4.4 on the Richter scale, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. It was centered about 150 miles south of Sacramento and 120 miles southeast of San Francisco.

The San Andreas Fault, stretching across hundreds of miles in western California, is the boundary between two plates that are moving past each other.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe vowed to save the men, saying: "Their lives are the top priority."

Abe and other Japanese officials declined to discuss whether they'd pay the ransom for captives Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa, though their armed forces generally only operate in a self-defense capacity at home. Their kidnapping also immediately recalled the 2004 beheading of a Japanese backpacker in Iraq, carried out by the Islamic State group's predecessor over Japan's involvement in the U.S.-led war there.
