Third in series of quakes strikes southern Japan, rescue efforts hampered

Third earthquake hits JapanTroops have been deployed to southern Japan after three powerful tremors rocked the region in as many days, leaving a total of an estimated 32 dead.

Seismologists now believe Thursday's quake, magnitude-6.5, was a "foreshock" leading up to the first of Saturday's two tremors, which had a magnitude of 7.4 on the Richter scale. That quake struck overnight. Hours later, a third tremor measuring 5.3 struck, which seismologists consider an aftershock.
