SANTIAGO - A 5.3 magnitude earthquake struck the central region of Chile on Wednesday, seismologists said. The epicentre of the quake, striking less than a week after a 9.0 earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan, was 44km west of the town of La Ligua and about 135km north of Santiago. The quake was reported by seismologists at the US Geological Survey and the University of Chile. There was no immediate report of injuries, local media reported. Chileans are still jittery after the 8.8 magnitude earthquake that struck the country in February 2010. That quake and subsequent tsunami killed 524 people. -- AFP
