6.2-Magnitude Quake Hits Indonesia's Sulawesi

A 6.2-magnitude earthquake hit the Indonesian island of Sulawesi on Monday, the US Geological Survey said.

The quake hit at a shallow depth of nine kilometres (five miles) at 2307 GMT around 75 kilometres southeast of the nearest main city of Kendari, the USGS said.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", where the meeting of continental plates causes high seismic activity, and is frequently hit by earthquakes.
