Indonesia’s meteorological agency says a strong earthquake has struck north of the island of Sulawesi, although there was no tsunami warning issued or immediate reports of damage or casualties.

The quake measured 6.5 on the Richter scale and was at a depth of 10 km with the epicentre 117 km north-east of Melonguane in the Talaud islands, it said.

Indonesia suffers frequent earthquakes, lying in an area of intense seismic activity straddling a number of tectonic plates.
