A tsunami warning triggered by a powerful earthquake near the Solomon Islands has been cancelled, according to U.S. government agencies.
The quake was centred 100 km (60 miles) south of Kira Kira on the island of Makira, and had a magnitude of 7.6.
There were no immediate reports of damage, and only very small tsunami wave activity - just a couple of centimetres - had been measured.
