MEXICO CITY — A magnitude-6.5 earthquake shook a wide swath of southern and central Mexico on Thursday, prompting people to flee into the streets in the country's capital.
The epicenter was located near the town of Las Choapas and about 370 miles (600 kilometers) southeast of Mexico City.
The temblor was felt strongly in Chiapas, a state bordering Guatemala.
There were no initial reports of damage or injuries.
