Jakarta (VNA) - A 6.1-magnitude earthquake rocked Papua Barat, eastern Indonesia in the morning of December 28, but no tsunami warning was issued.

According to the Meteorological, Climatological and Geophysical Agency of Indonesia, the quake happened at 10:03 am (local time) with an epicentre in southeast Manokwari at a depth of 26km.

The spokesperson of Indonesia’s National Agency for Disaster Mitigation said that no damage or casualty has been reported.

The December 28 quake happened when Indonesia is striving to overcome consequences of a tsunami disaster that hit Sunda Strait, Anyer Beach and South Lampung of Indonesia’s Banten and Lampung provinces on December 22 following a volcanic eruption, which claimed over 370 lives.

In late September this year, earthquakes and subsequent tsunami that hit Indonesia’s Central Sulawesi killed nearly 2,000 people and left 5,000 missing, while forcing more than 9,000 others to leave their house.

Indonesia, one of the most disaster-prone nations on earth, straddles the so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire", where tectonic plates collide and a large portion of the world’s volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur. -VNA
