Strong earthquake reported in far-western China
BEIJING — Chinese officials say a strong earthquake has struck a remote area of the country's far-western Xinjiang region.
The government earthquake monitoring center said the quake registered magnitude 6.2 and hit Sunday evening. It said it was centered 282 kilometers (175 miles) southeast of the oasis city of Hotan. The area is deep in the thinly populated Kunlun mountains.
There were no initial reports of damage or injuries from the quake. However, its depth was measured at a relatively shallow 30 kilometers (19 miles), increasing the likelihood of damage.
