A strong earthquake struck central Mexico on Monday, swaying tall buildings in the capital and sending office workers into the streets. The 6.0-magnitude quake was centered near Chilpancingo, about 210 kilometers southwest of Mexico City, according to the US Geological Survey. Televisa television network quoted Mexico City officials saying there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. The quake rattled nerves in a city already nervous about a swine flu outbreak suspected of killing as many as 149 people nationwide.
