    A 7.2-magnitude earthquake rocked off Vanuatu in the Pacific on Sunday, the US Geological Survey said.

    No casualties or damage have been reported.

    ​The Vanuatu islands are part of the so-called Ring of Fire — a horseshoe-shaped region in the Pacific Ocean formed by volcanoes and tectonic faults. Ninety percent of all earthquakes occur in the Ring.
