JAKARTA (AFP) - A strong 6.5-magnitude earthquake hit off Indonesia's Bengkulu province on Tuesday, local geologists said, but there were no immediate reports of damage or tsunami warnings issued. The quake struck at a depth of 10km, 547km south-west of Bintuhan in Bengkulu at 14.36 pm (0734 GMT, 3.34pm Singapore time), according to Indonesia's geophysics agency.
