TOKYO/TAIPEI (Reuters) - A strong earthquake rattled Taiwan and small islands in the far south of Japan on Monday, official monitoring sites said, briefly prompting a warning for a 1-metre tsunami for the Okinawa island chain. The Japan Meteorological Agency issued a warning for a 1-metre tsunami in small islands that are part of Okinawa, including Miyakojima, popular with tourists for diving. There was no warning issued for the main Okinawa island, which hosts U.S. military bases. The agency later lifted the tsunami warning.
