An earthquake of magnitude 7.5 struck Mindanao, Philippines on Saturday, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said. The quake was at a depth of 63 km (39 miles), EMSC added.

The US tsunami warning system issued a tsunami warning after the quake. Earlier last month, a magnitude 6.7 offshore earthquake in the southern Philippines killed eight people.

The deaths in the November 17 quake were reported from Sarangani, South Cotabato and Davao Occidental provinces, while 13 people were injured from the tremor, which sent scores of people into panic and damaged more than 50 houses and other buildings.
