A powerful earthquake has struck in Japan 24 hours after an earthquake

in the same area. The quake struck in the early hours

:00:24.:00:26.

of the morning, there are reports Rescue workers are searching

a magnitude of 7.1 - -- 7.3 happened in the early

:01:17.:01:22.

hours of the morning. Both quakes have hit near Kumamoto,

:01:23.:01:27.

on the island of Kyushu. Pictures from Japan's NHK television

:01:28.:01:30.

showed buildings shaking There are reports of people

being trapped in their homes Nine people are known to have died

and more than a thousand injured from the first tremor

on Thursday night. Officials are warning that the death

toll may rise as collapsed Our correspondent, Rupert Wingfield

:01:51.:01:52.

Hayes is in Tokyo. Terrifying for the people of the

:01:53.:02:08.

region. We are seeing on television thousands and thousands of people in

:02:09.:02:12.

the streets, filling public parks and spaces, wrapped in blankets,

:02:13.:02:17.

basically very scared from this double shock they have had. There

:02:18.:02:22.

was a big shake last night and now we have had a big shake tonight. The

:02:23.:02:28.

intensity of shaking, even though the magnitude was bigger than last

:02:29.:02:35.

night's earthquake, the shaking was slightly less. But we hear reports

:02:36.:02:40.

of people calling from inside buildings saying they are trapped

:02:41.:02:43.

and there are a number of rescue is going on. These are rescue is taking

place following the first initial earthquake. It is difficult to

:02:49.:02:53.

determine from the live pictures we are seeing as to whether the

:02:54.:02:59.

pictures are fresh damage, whether it is damage from last night. A

:03:00.:03:04.

confusing picture at the moment. The second earthquake appears to have

:03:05.:03:08.

affected a wider area, deeper into the countryside and into the

:03:09.:03:12.

mountains, which is where perhaps some of the fresh damage has been

:03:13.:03:19.

done. It looks additionally like there may be some collapsed

:03:20.:03:24.

buildings from the second quake. When we spoke after the first, you

:03:25.:03:32.

said you felt it in Tokyo. Did you feel the second in Tokyo? No, which

:03:33.:03:38.

does not mean it was not felt here. Last night, the initial quake and

:03:39.:03:44.

after-shock were felt in Tokyo. It was intense shaking, even though it

:03:45.:03:49.

was a smaller magnitude. This one is slightly less, but still of a

:03:50.:03:50.

destructive magnitude. Our correspondent,

are being questioned on suspicion of terrorism,

the arrests are 'significant'. The operation began late last night

into whether any judicial, security or police measures

could have prevented the attacks. The Prime Minister is insisting

in the investigations, the presence of this report

in the number of migrants arriving The International Organisation

:08:06.:08:14.

for Migration warns that nearly 6000 have arrived

:08:15.:08:20.

since Tuesday alone. It says that in the week to April

:08:21.:08:24.

the 13th arrivals in the country were 173 per cent

:08:25.:08:26.

higher than the previous week. Whilst in Greece arrivals

:08:27.:08:30.

were 76 per cent lower. Officials in Libya say they fear

:08:31.:08:35.

the closure of the migrant route through Greece

:08:36.:08:38.

is leading to the surge. Speaking to the BBC

:08:39.:08:40.

the European Union's foreign policy chief,

:08:41.:08:43.

Federica Mogherini, acknowledged that migrant routes could be

shifting back towards the central But speaking to the BBC she also

:08:48.:08:49.

insisted that European naval operations in the central

Mediterranean are hitting people The actions we are taking against

:08:56.:09:08.

the smugglers are painful to them. We could do much more if and when we

:09:09.:09:15.

move to the next phase of the operation and as we build on what we

:09:16.:09:25.

have achieved in six months, and we always say Europe is slow and in

:09:26.:09:30.

this case we have been very fast. The action is effective on the

:09:31.:09:36.

smugglers. They are paying a price, economic price, and life is becoming

:09:37.:09:38.

more difficult for their business. We can return to the top story, the

:09:39.:09:50.

second earthquake in Japan in the same area we have the first

:09:51.:09:53.

earthquake on Thursday when nine people are known to have died. We

:09:54.:10:00.

can speak to a research geophysicist with the US geographical survey. He

:10:01.:10:09.

joins us from Colorado. This second magnitude, slightly stronger in

:10:10.:10:12.

strength when it comes to a comparison with the first, but a

:10:13.:10:19.

less intense in the shaking experience by people on the ground,

:10:20.:10:24.

is that right? I would have expected the shaking to be equivalent or

:10:25.:10:28.

larger than the first earthquake. This earthquake is almost 30 times

:10:29.:10:33.

bigger than yesterday's event, so the shaking should be of comparable

:10:34.:10:42.

magnitude. The tsunami warning was lifted because they did not expect a

:10:43.:10:49.

tsunami, given it was unsure. Exactly. The size and location of

:10:50.:10:55.

the earthquake indicated a tsunami is unlikely unless the event

:10:56.:10:57.

triggered an underwater landslide which is much less likely. When it

:10:58.:11:09.

comes to having a second earthquake in the same area, how devastating is

:11:10.:11:14.

that. Extremely devastating. They are trying to deal with the rescue

:11:15.:11:20.

from the first earthquake yesterday. And a larger event strikes during

:11:21.:11:27.

that rescue operation and so it can impact and compounding on the

:11:28.:11:31.

shaking from the first earthquake from yesterday. This was relatively

:11:32.:11:37.

shallow, ten kilometres in depth, explain the significance of that. It

:11:38.:11:41.

means that because the earthquake is so much closer to the ground

:11:42.:11:47.

surface, the shaking is felt more intensely and the larger size of the

:11:48.:11:53.

earthquake and length of the fault, 30, 40 kilometres long, and the

:11:54.:11:57.

ground surface would have moved in the region of four, five metres and

:11:58.:12:02.

so you are talking intense shaking over a large area and that is why we

:12:03.:12:07.

should seek a significant impact from this event. It would be

:12:08.:12:10.

considered a shallow depth? Extremely shallow. In this area,

:12:11.:12:17.

that is unusual? Relatively unusual. It is not uncommon in Japan because

:12:18.:12:24.

of the boundary region where the upper crust is riddled with faults

:12:25.:12:29.

that can have this type of earthquake over longer occurrence

:12:30.:12:32.

intervals than we expect them from the plate boundary offshore and that

:12:33.:12:40.

plate boundary generates most of the earthquakes in this region. Thanks

:12:41.:12:49.

for putting that into context. We will be getting reaction on social

:12:50.:12:53.

media as to what has happened also. One of Britain's biggest food

:12:54.:12:57.

manufacturers has told shoppers that some of their products have so much

:12:58.:12:59.

sugar and salt in them that they shouldn't be eaten

:13:00.:13:02.

more than once a week. Mars, which makes Dolmio sauces

:13:03.:13:04.

and Uncle Ben's rice, is introducing new labelling,

:13:05.:13:08.

to distinguish between what it calls Here's our health correspondent

:13:09.:13:10.

Dominic Hughes. For busy mum of two

:13:11.:13:23.

Suzanna, time is precious. When it comes to getting dinner

:13:24.:13:26.

on the table, there's no messing about, and that is where a cooking

:13:27.:13:28.

sauce comes into its own. They are ideal - nowadays everybody

:13:29.:13:31.

has got pasta in the cupboards, it is easy - heat it up,

:13:32.:13:34.

pour it over, a meal When you have got babies crying,

:13:35.:13:38.

you need to have something quick But there has been growing concern

:13:39.:13:42.

around the amount of salt, sugar and fat hidden in prepared sauces,

:13:43.:13:47.

and the impact they are having Of course, it is not just

:13:48.:13:49.

the Mars group that produces these stir-in sauces,

:13:50.:13:58.

most of the major food manufacturers The problem for consumers, for

:13:59.:14:00.

shoppers, is trying to calculate how much salt, fat or sugar

:14:01.:14:05.

these sauces contain. So concentrating just

:14:06.:14:07.

on sugar content, in this jar of Loyd Grossman tomato sauce,

:14:08.:14:16.

there are the equivalent This Napolina sauce jar

:14:17.:14:18.

contains five teaspoons. But this Dolmio sauce

:14:19.:14:21.

in a slightly larger jar, has the equivalent of seven

:14:22.:14:23.

teaspoons of sugar. Now the food giant Mars has decided

:14:24.:14:26.

to publicly warn its customers that some of its products have so much

:14:27.:14:31.

fat, sugar and salt they should only The ingredients of other products

:14:32.:14:35.

will be changed in the coming years We really hope that others

:14:36.:14:42.

will follow us, we have taken the most exacting standards,

:14:43.:14:53.

and we believe it will set up very well when it comes to not just

:14:54.:14:56.

the UK but around the world, and we would be delighted if other

:14:57.:14:59.

industry members joined us too. Food retailers say it is

:15:00.:15:02.

an interesting proposal but for it to be effective it should apply

:15:03.:15:05.

across the industry, and in the wake of the sugar

:15:06.:15:07.

tax on fizzy drinks, some experts believe

:15:08.:15:10.

Mars is being clever, making sure it is well positioned

:15:11.:15:12.

ahead of any possible They are definitely leading the way,

:15:13.:15:14.

but it is not enough to tackle the obesity crisis,

:15:15.:15:23.

so it is not really taking responsibility for the unhealthy

:15:24.:15:26.

ingredients in their food. They are still relying on consumers

:15:27.:15:28.

to make those choices, when there is not a great healthy

:15:29.:15:30.

food supply for them to do so. Concerns about our diet

:15:31.:15:33.

and a growing problem with obesity, especially among children,

:15:34.:15:36.

has ramped up the pressure They want to show they are

:15:37.:15:38.

responding and can regulate themselves,

:15:39.:15:41.

so where Mars is leading, Stay with this with more to come.

:15:42.:15:55.

Those men are about to disperse. Helen Mirren calls on actresses to

:15:56.:16:02.

go for more male roles as she plays a tough soldier in her new film Eye

:16:03.:16:04.

In The Sky. There have been violent protests in

:16:05.:16:31.

Indonesia where Playboy has gone on sale for the first time. Muslim

:16:32.:16:40.

leaders have expressed disgust. It was clear Paula's only contest was

:16:41.:16:44.

with the clock. Paula Radcliffe's competitors will chase her new world

:16:45.:16:47.

best time for years to come. Quicker and quicker. She seemed to

:16:48.:17:02.

slide away under the surface and disappear.

:17:03.:17:10.

Welcome. The main story. There has been another powerful earthquake in

:17:11.:17:22.

Japan, in this city that was hit by a deadly tremor on Thursday.

:17:23.:17:31.

We will stay with that story and get more reaction from social media. The

:17:32.:17:38.

BBC has been monitoring it. I expect a lot of people discussing this.

:17:39.:17:44.

What are you hearing? Indeed, in fact quite a few people have been

:17:45.:17:50.

asking for help on Twitter. Also, the latest information from local

:17:51.:17:57.

media has been updated. I just saw the latest, on NHK, but there seems

:17:58.:18:02.

to have been one person confirmed to have died from fire. This was the

:18:03.:18:09.

second tremor. The media saying the authorities seem to think this was

:18:10.:18:16.

the main one and the one just over 24 hours ago, that was the earlier

:18:17.:18:23.

warning. It seems like there are quite a lot of after-shocks. Quite a

:18:24.:18:28.

large one, as well, and a lot of people, especially those who are

:18:29.:18:39.

anti-nuclear power plant, they ask if the power plant is OK. One of the

:18:40.:18:45.

few operating in Japan. The authorities say there does not seem

:18:46.:18:48.

to be any damage but many say it would be too late if there was an

:18:49.:18:57.

issue. Also one dam seems to have collapsed in a village. There could

:18:58.:19:02.

be flooding happening in a small village, as well. Given the second

:19:03.:19:05.

earthquake is around 30 time largest in terms of energy released. We have

:19:06.:19:14.

heard our reporter saying that people are staying out on the

:19:15.:19:20.

streets. I saw the footage of people outside a hospital. When a big

:19:21.:19:27.

earthquake hits, you should probably stay outdoors instead of inside

:19:28.:19:31.

because a lot of buildings, even though they are built to whether

:19:32.:19:36.

these big earthquakes, obviously this one was a huge one, and it is

:19:37.:19:42.

safer to be outside and so a lot of people outdoors. There is a volcanic

:19:43.:19:47.

mountain in the area. There are concerns about that. Tensions are

:19:48.:19:52.

quite high. I have been on Twitter asking if there was anyone in the

:19:53.:19:57.

area eager to talk to us. I have been told off, saying that, stay

:19:58.:20:05.

away, the phone line should be kept for contacting family members, if a

:20:06.:20:10.

line is available. Also water and gas have been shut down, although

:20:11.:20:13.

the electricity seems to have come back. Thanks very much for

:20:14.:20:17.

monitoring social media reaction. The Manchester City manager says

:20:18.:20:33.

there will be no extra personal motivation when his side talk on --

:20:34.:20:40.

take on former club Real Madrid. They play them in the semifinals.

:20:41.:20:47.

Pep Guardiola could face his new club in Milan in the final.

:20:48.:20:55.

Will we get a repeat of the 20 14th final when we had a Madrid derby?

:20:56.:21:02.

Will Guardiola meet Pellegrini? Will we have a new winner? We will

:21:03.:21:07.

definitely get one if Manchester City meet Atletico Madrid. What

:21:08.:21:12.

about the semifinals? Real Madrid are in good form with one defeat in

:21:13.:21:18.

nine and Cristiano Ronaldo is the Champions League's top scorer with

:21:19.:21:24.

16. They are unbeaten in their last games against English clubs. They

:21:25.:21:29.

will start as favourites but they showed vulnerability against

:21:30.:21:34.

Wolfsburg. Manchester City will be confident after the win against PSG.

:21:35.:21:39.

It does not matter which of the three teams we have to play they are

:21:40.:21:45.

difficult. The option is to continue with the same team and I expect them

:21:46.:21:50.

to do a good game against the big team. TRANSLATION: It is a semifinal

:21:51.:21:58.

and it will be a difficult match. The only positive thing, if anything

:21:59.:22:02.

is positive, we play the second leg at home, which I suppose is a good

:22:03.:22:06.

thing. It is a difficult match and it will be a real fight. The second

:22:07.:22:14.

semifinal brings two managers who had regular midfield battles in

:22:15.:22:19.

playing days. Diego Simeone and Pep Guardiola. The only time Atletico

:22:20.:22:24.

Madrid have met by new is when the German side won 4-0 in a replay. It

:22:25.:22:32.

will bring together one of the best defences and one of the best attacks

:22:33.:22:37.

with Atletico Madrid conceding 16 La Liga goals. Bayern Munich under

their head coach Pep Guardiola have Robert Lewandowski who has got 42
