A magnitude 5.4 earthquake struck the south-east coast of South Korea, 6 km north of Pohang City. Residents of the captial Seoul, over 300km away, could feel the tremors and have reported buildings shaking.

Building walls crumbled, and windows shattered at the epicentre, though the Korea Meteorological Administration said only minor casualties and no major damage have been reported. South Korean media showed some damage to cars and buildings and images of school students taking shelter in playgrounds.

This 5.4 magnitude quake comes just days after a 5.8 magnitude earthquake in neighbouring Japan.
