A moderate 5.7-magnitude earthquake shook the Nepal-India border region on Monday with tremors felt as far away as the Indian capital of New Delhi.

The epicentre of the quake was in the border region between Nepal and India, a seismologist at the Indian Meteorological Department said.

The quake struck at a depth of 10 kilometres (six miles), he said.

"It was a moderate quake... with a shallow to moderate focal depth," said the official, who asked not to be identified.

No damage or casualties were immediately reported.

The tremor was also felt in two towns in far western Nepal, Dhangadi and Mahendranagar, Nepal's private Avenues Television reported.
