Magnitude 6.0 earthquake hits eastern Japan

(Reuters) - A magnitude 6.0 earthquake shook eastern Japan on Tuesday, one of the most powerful aftershocks to hit the country since Friday's devastating earthquake and tsunami which killed at least 10,000 people, public broadcaster NHK said.

The quake could be felt in Tokyo where buildings swayed.
