(03-26 09:34)

A 6.2 magnitude earthquake shook Guatemala late yesterday, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or significant damage.
The quake, which struck at at 5:02 pm local time, had its epicenter 10 kilometers east-southeast of the capital Guatemala City at a depth of 200 km, the US Geological Survey reported.
But people in Guatemala City hardly felt the quake, witnesses said.
Guatemala's Disaster Coordination Network, CONRED, issued a mid-level Yellow Alert, but none of their regional officers across the country reported victims or damage.
