JAKARTA, March 2 (Reuters) - An earthquake of magnitude 7.9 that struck off Indonesia's island of Sumatra on Wednesday killed some people, but it was not yet clear how many, an official of the country's search and rescue agency told Reuters.

"There are some who have died," said Heronimus Guru, the agency's deputy head of operations, without giving details.
