One person was killed and two others injured after a strong earthquake hit off the Peruvian coast on Friday night, the governor of the affected region said.

The quake measuring magnitude 5.6 struck the South Pacific near the city of Camana in Peru’s Arequipa region at 21:45 UTC, the US Geological Survey said. It lied at the depth of over 25 miles.

"One person has reportedly died on the Secocha-Urasqui road in Camana, and two others have been injured. My condolences to the affected families," Gov. Yamila Osorio tweeted.

She said clear-up operations were underway in the country’s quake-hit south after landslides blocked roads.
