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 kilometer around 160 kms southeast of Banda Aceh on Indonesia's Sumatra Island at 2:09 am local time, the US Geological Survey said.
Aceh province is frequently hit by earthquakes and was devastated by the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami.
Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", where the meeting of continental plates causes strong seismic activity including earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
