BUENOS-AIRES, July 17 (Itar-Tass) - An earthquake measured 5.7 points occurred off the South Shetland Islands at 16:42 local time (00:16 Moscow time), the European Mediterranean seismological centre reported.
Neither injured people nor damaged buildings were reported. The danger of tsunami was not reported.
One of five Russian round-the-year Antarctic stations Bellingshausen is situated on the archipelago, which is situated between the Antarctic Peninsula and South America.
The South Shetland Islands are one of the most favourable places in the Antarctic in terms of climate, therefore, over ten scientific research stations from different countries are based on the islands.
