Buildings shook violently in Taiwan's capital Taipei Thursday as a 5.6-magnitude quake hit off the island's northeast coast.

The shallow quake struck at a depth of 10 km (six miles), the US Geological Survey said, just east of the coastal city of Yilan, 60 kilometres from Taipei. There were no immediate reports of damage.
