An earthquake described by Mexico's president as the country's strongest in a century has struck off the southern coast, killing at least 15 people, BBC reports.

The quake, which President Enrique Peña Nieto told BBC, measured 8.2, struck in the Pacific, about 87km (54 miles) south-west of Pijijiapan.
Severe damage has been reported in Oaxaca and Chiapas states.

The quake, which struck at 23:50 local time on Thursday (04:50 GMT Friday), was felt in Mexico City, with buildings swaying and people running into the street. The tremors there, about 1,000km from the epicentre, were reported to have lasted up to a minute.

It is reported that a tsunami warning was issued for Mexico, with three-metre-high waves possible, and other nearby countries.

Among the deaths were at least four in Chiapas. Two children were killed in Tabasco state, one a baby who died when power was cut to a respirator.
