Quake rocks Vanuatu in South Pacific

An earthquake of magnitude six has shaken the island nation of Vanuatu in the South Pacific.

The tremor comes one day after Vanuatu was hit by a stronger quake which generated a small tsunami, according to the US Geological Survey.

A tourist was filmed leaving her hotel as the quake struck, and people comforted each other on the street.

Meanwhile staff at a beer factory counted the cost of the damage.
