A STRONG 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck off the Indonesian resort island of Bali.

JAKARTA - A STRONG 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck off the Indonesian resort island of Bali early on Friday but was located too deep to generate a tsunami in the Indian Ocean, seismologists said. The tremor hit at 1.08am and was centred 261km north-east of Bali's capital Denpasar at a depth of 510km, the US Geological Survey said. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said there was no danger of a tsunami. 'This earthquake is located too deep inside the Earth to generate a tsunami in the Indian Ocean,' it said. Geoscience Australia and the Hong Kong Observatory also recorded the quake at 6.2. Indonesia sits on the Pacific 'Ring of Fire', where the meeting of continental plates causes high seismic activity. -- AFP
