SINGAPORE (Reuters) - An earthquake of magnitude 5.9 struck Taiwan, the United States Geological Survey said on Tuesday, and witnesses said it set buildings shaking in the capital Taipei.

There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties from the quake, which hit 95 km (59 miles) southeast of the coastal town of Su-ao at a depth of 26 km (16 miles).

Su-ao is about 70 km (44 miles) away from the capital.
