Magnitude 6.1 earthquake hits east Taiwan
A magnitude 6.1 earthquake has struck Taiwan's coastal city of Hualien, shaking buildings and temporarily suspending subway services in the capital Taipei, but there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties. Local television footage showed school children being evacuated from buildings, while a weather bureau official said Thursday's quake was the largest to hit the island so far this year.
It struck at 1:01pm local time (05:01 GMT) at a depth of 18km.
