5.9 earthquake hits Haiti

At least 11 people have been killed when a magnitude-5.9 earthquake struck close to the northernmost tip of Haiti, roughly 20km west-northwest of Port-de-Paix.

Government spokesman Eddy Jackson Alexis told the AFP news agency seven people were killed in Port-de-Paix, the capital of Haiti's Nord-Ouest department, while four others were killed in the town of Gros-Morne, about 50km to the southeast.

The quake, which was felt across the country, struck at 8:10pm (00:10 GMT Sunday) at a depth of 11.7km.

The tremor was one of the strongest to hit Haiti since a 7.0-magnitude quake struck near the Port-au-Prince in 2010, killing tens of thousands of people.
