      The 7.2-magnitude quake hit the west of the country, with its epicentre about 12km (7.5 miles) from the town of Saint-Louis du Sud, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).

      Officials told reporters there had been fatalities, but the toll is unclear. Images on social media showed buildings reduced to rubble.

      Haiti is still recovering from a devastating 2010 earthquake.
