(12-17 18:04)

A strong 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of central Indonesia Monday, the US Geological Survey said, but local seismologists ruled out any threat of a tsunami.
The quake struck at 0916 GMT at a depth of 18 kilometres, more than 160 kilometres south-southeast of Gorontalo in central Indonesia's Sulawesi island, AFP reports.
