A 5.7-magnitude earthquake hit Indonesia's main island of Java on Saturday, the United States Geological Survey said, less than two weeks after another quake in the same province killed more than 320 people.

The epicentre was located 18 kilometres (11 miles) southeast of the West Java city of Banjar, according to USGS. Indonesia's meteorological agency gave a higher magnitude of 6.4 for the quake, which also shook buildings in the capital Jakarta, according to an AFP journalist.
