Mexico hit by strong earthquake near Acapulco

A large earthquake has struck near Acapulco on Mexico's Pacific coast.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake had a magnitude of 7.6 and put the epicentre at 15 miles (525 km) east of Ometepec, in Guerrero state.

Witnesses said buildings swayed in the capital, Mexico City, sending office workers rushing out onto the streets.

It was not immediately clear whether the earthquake had caused any significant damage.

The BBC's Will Grant, in Mexico City, says buildings swayed for at least a minute.

Office workers and residents were sent running into the streets in wealthy districts and poor neighbourhoods alike, he reports.

Sirens could be heard across the city, and police helicopters are crisscrossing the skies.

Mobile phone networks have been affected, our correspondent says.
