Strong earthquake hits near India's Nicobar Islands

An earthquake of 7.7 magnitude has hit near India's Nicobar Islands, in the Indian Ocean.

The US Geological Survey said it occurred about 150km (95 miles) west of the Nicobar Islands and 440km from Sumatra, Indonesia.

The quake prompted the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center to issue a tsunami watch for the Indian Ocean.

But the agency later reduced the watch to India only, saying there was a possibilty of a local tsunami.

However, emergency services in Sri Lanka say they have issued an alert for coastal regions.

In 2004, a powerful earthquake off Sumatra's coast triggered a tsunami that killed more than 220,000 people around the rim of the Indian Ocean.
