An earthquake of magnitude 5.6 has struck the Taiwan region early on Sunday, the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said.

The quake was at a depth of 20 km, EMSC said. It was revised from its initial measurement of magnitude 6 and depth of 55 km.

Taiwan, a self-ruled island that China considers its own, lies near the junction of two tectonic plates and is prone to earthquakes.
