A magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck off the coast of Ecuador on Wednesday, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said, just days after a major quake hit the country killing nearly 500 people.

The quake was centred 70 km (44 miles) west-southwest of Esmeraldas at a shallow depth of 10 km, it said, not far from the epicenter of Saturday’s 7.8 magnitude quake.
