Strong 6.5 quake off Indonesia, no damage reported

One of the largest aftershocks since the tsunami quake six days ago was registered in the sea off the Indonesian city of Banda Aceh on Saturday, the U.S. Geological Survey said, but was not expected to cause damage.

Survey spokeswoman Kathleen Gohn said there were no initial reports that the 6.5 magnitude earthquake, 215 miles (345 km) from Banda Aceh, had been felt in Indonesia. It was one of the strongest of dozens of aftershocks since Sunday's 9.0-magnitude quake.
