The National Seismic Network stations in Egypt recorded an earthquake in southwestern Western Sahara with a magnitude of 4.6 on the Richter scale.
The institute revealed in a statement, that the earthquake was located 300 km northwest of Abu Simbel, where it occurred at 10:40 am local time.
The institute has not received any reports of injuries or material losses so far as a result of that earthquake.
The National Seismic Network operates through 70 stations whose locations have been carefully selected in light of the seismic history of all of Egypt, and it has become impossible for any earthquake to occur without recording and monitoring it, regardless of its strength.
