An earthquake of 6.3 magnitude struck the Gulf of Aden Saturday, off the coast of southeast Yemen but there were no reports of casualties or damage as Sunni Muslims celebrated the first day of the most important holiday on the Islamic calendar. The quake occurred at a depth of 10 kilometers the United States Geological survey reported on its Web site. The quake, at 11:30 a.m. local time (0830 GMT), was not felt by people in Aden, Yemen's southern port city. Yemeni officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to give statements to the media, said no damage resulted from the temblor. Earthquakes are rarely felt in Yemen, however a temblor in 1982 caused serious damage.
