An earthquake measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale jolted Meulaboh in Aceh province Monday night, but no fatalities were reported.

State news agency Antara reported the quake, with an epicenter 327 kilometers southwest of Meulaboh and 10 kilometers deep, struck at 11 p.m. local time. The local office of the Meteorological, Climatology and Geophysics Agency said that the quake did not trigger a tsunami alarm.

In December 2004, an 8.9-magnitude quake hit Aceh and Nias Island in North Sumatra, triggering a deadly tsunami that devastated the coastal areas and killed around 200,000 people.

Indonesia, the world's largest archipelago, straddles the Pacific "Ring of Fire", the edge of a tectonic plate prone to seismic upheavals.
