According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit northern Algeria, with an epicentre located 22 kilometres from Chelghoum Laïd at a depth of 10 kilometres.
The quake comes just a day after a tremor of the same magnitude was registered in the northeastern Japanese prefecture of Iwate.
