Taipei, June 20 (QNA) - A magnitude 6.0 earthquake shook Taiwan's capital, Taipei, on Monday morning. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

Taiwan lies near the junction of two tectonic plates and is prone to earthquakes. More than 100 people were killed in a quake in southern Taiwan in 2016, while a 7.3 magnitude quake killed more than 2,000 people in 1999. (QNA)
