A strong 6.9-magnitude earthquake has hit northeast India, killing at least 11 people, including three caught in a wall collapse at the British Embassy in neighbouring Nepal.
The US Geological Survey said the quake struck the small, landlocked Himalayan state of Sikkim - which borders Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet - about 6.10pm (10.40pm AEST) yesterday.
The epicentre was just over 60 kilometres northwest of the Sikkim state capital Gangtok, which was plunged into darkness by a power cut after the quake.
