A deep 7.1-magnitude earthquake shook eastern Indonesia on Saturday, sending panicked residents running out of their homes, the Indonesian Meteorology and Geophysics Agency and witnesses said. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries and no tsunami alert was issued, said Suharjono, an agency spokesman. The tremor struck at a depth of about 100 kilometers in Maluku province, about 2,700 kilometers east of the capital, Jakarta. The U.S. Geological Survey put the quake at a magnitude 6.3.
