The Jakarta Globe, January 22, 2013


Banda Aceh. A 5.9-magnitude earthquake struck off Indonesia's Aceh province on Tuesday, killing an eight-year-old girl and injuring seven others, officials said.

The quake struck 112 kilometers southeast of the provincial capital of Banda Aceh at 22:22 GMT, at a depth of 37 kilometers, the US Geological Survey said.

"An eight-year-old girl in Pidie district was killed after a cupboard in her bedroom fell on her when the quake shook the ground," the district's disaster management agency chief Apriyadi, who goes by one name, told AFP.

He added that seven people were injured, four of them seriously, due to collapsing walls.

The Indonesian Meteorology, Geophysics and Climatology Agency (BMKG) issued no tsunami alert.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire" where continental plates collide, causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity.
