A magnitude 6.7 earthquake has hit eastern Indonesia near the Aru islands, the US Geological Survey says.

The quake, which was originally measured at 6.9, struck at a depth of 33 km, 80 km north-northwest of Dobo on the Aru islands on Friday, said the USGS.

The US Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said a destructive widespread tsunami was not likely to be generated by the earthquake, but that there was a small possibility of a local tsunami.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
