Deep earthquake with magnitude 7.1 strikes southern Peru

(Reuters) - An earthquake with magnitude 7.1 struck southern Peru, 67 km north-northwest of Juliaca, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The earthquake was very deep at 258 km.

Based on all available data a destructive Pacific-wide tsunami is not expected, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.
