"Based on all available data, there is no tsunami threat from this earthquake," a notice said.

It came days after another tremor measuring 6.4 hit the same region

Papua New Guinea lies on the Pacific "Ring of Fire" - a volcanically active region subject to requent earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions.

In July 1998, two undersea quakes measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale created three tsunamis that killed at least 2,100 people near the town of Aitape.
