The agency's spokesman, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, reiterated that the official search for bodies will end today with prayers in hard-hit neighbourhoods.

The USGS website said there was a "low likelihood of casualties and damage" from the quake.

Also on Thursday, a magnitude-6.0 quake struck just off the popular island of Bali, Indonesia, where the International Monetary Fund and its sister lending organisation, the World Bank, were holding annual meetings until Sunday.

The quake struck just before 7am local time on Thursday (10pm BST).

A magnitude 7.0 natural disaster struck remote New Britain island in Papua New Guinea on Thursday, the United States Geological Survey said.

Hazardous tsunami waves from the natural disaster were possible within 300 km of the epicenter along Papua New Guinea coastlines, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

It later revised its forecast saying: 'Based on all available data the tsunami threat from this natural disaster has now passed'.

Speaking by phone from Rabaul police station, Constable Roy Michael said he felt the quake but "it was not too strong".

He said there was no damage in the town, but officers had not yet been able to contact villages closer to the epicentre.

The quake in Papua raised the possibility of a local tsunami, although authorities said there was no significant tsunami threat to Hawaii or the wider Pacific region.

A magnitude 6.2 aftershock was recorded over an hour after the original quake struck, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The magnitude 7.0 quake struck about 118km east of Kimbe, West New Britain.

The tremors comes after a 7.5-magnitude and subsequent tsunami struck off the Indonesian island of Sulawesi - around 1,000 km northeast of Situbondo - last month, killing more than 2,000 people.
