A strong 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck off the Indonesian resort island of Bali on Monday, but there was no tsunami warning and no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The quake's epicentre was at a shallow depth of eight kilometres, the US Geological Survey said, putting it 278 kilometres south of Denpasar, on Bali. The quake hit at 2:23 am (2353 IST).

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