An earthquake measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale shook jungle regions of Indonesia's eastermost Papua province on Wednesday but there were no reports of damage or casualties, an official said.

The epicenter of the quake, which struck at 0356 GMT, was 72 kilometers west of Manokwari town, said Abdi Waluyo of the national seismology center.

"The epicenter is probably in the jungles but the quake was felt strongly in Manokwari and Sorong," he said.
