A quake of 6.1 magnitude hit Indonesia's West Java area on Saturday, the country's geophysics agency BMKG said, sending people running out of buildings.
Axar.az reports that the quake has no tsunami potential, the agency said. It was felt in capital Jakarta, around 200 km from the epicentre.
One person was injured and four houses were damaged in the town of Garut, said Abdul Muhari, spokesperson for Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency (BNPB).
Some residents of other towns and cities in West Java said on social media they felt the quake strongly. Witness in Bandung, the capital of West Java province, said guests of a hotel ran out of the building but had since returned inside.
