Jakarta: A strong earthquake has jolted parts of eastern Indonesia, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

Indonesia’s meteorology and geophysics agency said there was no danger of a tsunami, but the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said there was a “very small possibility” for a tsunami near the epicentre.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake measured magnitude 6.7 and was centred 108 kilometres north of Dobo on Aru island chain of the provincial capital of Maluku, at a depth of 24 kilometres.
