ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A deep earthquake with a magnitude of 7.5 struck the Peru-Ecuador border region early on Friday morning, the United States Geological Survey said.

The quake's epicentre was in a sparsely populated area 224 km (140 miles) east-southeast of Ambato, Ecuador, at a depth of 132 km.

The USGS's initial reading had assessed the quake, which occurred at 5:17 a.m.

(1017 GMT), at magnitude 7.7.

There was no risk of a tsunami being triggered, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said, and there were no initial reports of casualties or damage.
