MANILA, Philippines — A strong earthquake shook parts of the southern and central Philippines on Monday, frightening people but causing no serious damage or injuries, officials said.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake measured magnitude 6.1 and struck at a depth of 38 kilometers (23 miles).

Government seismologist Jane Punongbayan said it was centered under the ocean 205 kilometers (127 miles) northwest of Zamboanga city and was too deep and far from urban areas to cause any damage or injuries. She said aftershocks were expected.
