Earthquake in Indonesia

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) _ There are no reports of any injuries
or damage, but a moderate earthquake has sent people running out of
their homes on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia.

The quake this morning registered 5.7 and did not prompt a
tsunami warning.

Indonesia is located along the Pacific's so-called Ring of Fire
network of volcanos and fault lines.

A massive earthquake there in December 2004 caused a tsunami
that killed nearly a-quarter million people in a dozen countries.
