A magnitude 5.9 quake struck in southeastern Peru on Wednesday, close to Bolivia's capital of La Paz, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

It said the quake, fairly deep at 155 miles, occurred about 60 miles east of the Peruvian city of Juliaca and 100 miles northwest of La Paz.

The temblor was not felt in La Paz, nor in Peru's capital of Lima, people in those cities said.

There were no immediate reports of damages or injuries.
