Three Dead, Plants and Trains Halted After Japan Quake

Three people were confirmed dead and almost 100 injured after a strong earthquake hit Osaka on Monday morning, rattling one of Japan’s industrial heartlands and halting trains and factories across the region. It was the strongest shaking registered in Osaka under records which date back to 1923. All trains and subways across Osaka city were halted, and the bullet train that links Osaka to Tokyo was stopped.
