Two killed in Thursday's earthquake off Japan

Two people in Japan were killed in powerful earthquake that struck off Japan's northeast coast on Thursday, government officials said Friday.

The Japan Meteorological Agency said the quake was a magnitude 7.4. The U.S. Geological Survey said it was 7.1.

The quake comes after last month's devastating 9.0-magnitude quake off Japan's coast.
