Earthquake hits Indonesia

Indonesia, July 6: A strong 6.4-magnitude quake struck off Indonesia's Sumatra near Bengkulu, Saturday, US seismologists said, just days after a tremor on the vast island killed dozens and left thousands homeless.

No tsunami warning was issued and there were no reports of damage after the quake struck at a shallow depth of just 23 kilometres (14 miles), said the US Geological Survey.
