5.3-magnitude quake rattles Indonesia's Sumatra island

JAKARTA: A 5.3-magnitude earthquake rattled the northern tip of Indonesia on Monday, geologists said, but there were no immediate reports of damage. The quake struck at a shallow depth of one kilometre around 160 kilometres southeast of Banda Aceh on Indonesia's Sumatra island at 2:09 am (1809 GMT Sunday), the US Geological Survey said.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", where the meeting of continental plates causes strong seismic activity including earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
