Manila: A 6.8-magnitude earthquake struck off the Philippines early yesterday, officials said, damaging several buildings and injuring two people as panicked residents fled the coast following a tsunami warning.

US authorities warned of potential hazardous waves in the southern region of Mindanao and Indonesia after the quake hit at 4.23am, but the tsunami alert was lifted less than two hours later.
