A strong 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck southern Kyrgyzstan on Sunday, the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The quake was registered at 11:17 GMT at the depth of 12 miles. It hit some 75 miles southeast from the Central Asian nation’s second largest city of Osh, with a population of 200,000.

Tremors were felt wide across the region, with shocks reaching nearby Kazakhstan, a RIA Novosti correspondent in the Kazakh city Almaty said.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage from Kyrgyzstan’s Emergencies Ministry.
