Three people are reported to have been killed when a strong earthquake hit the Japanese city of Osaka.

The magnitude 6.1 quake struck the city during the morning rush hour - bringing train lines to a halt.

A 9-year-old girl and two men in their 80s have been killed by the strong earthquake. The Osaka prefectural government reported two deaths, and an Ibaraki city official confirmed a third.

It set off multiple building fires and toppled walls. Train service was suspended across a wide area during the morning commute.
