An earthquake shook Indonesia's main Java island Monday afternoon, killing at least 56 people, local officials said.

Around 700 people were injured, National Disaster Mitigation Agency chief Suharyanto said.

"Many were hurt because they were hit by collapsed buildings," he added.

The death toll reached 56 as of Monday evening, according to Herman Suherman, the head of Cianjur district.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the 5.6-magnitude earthquake struck West Java at 1:21 p.m. local time (1:21 a.m. ET). It was centered in the Cianjur region at a depth of 6.2 miles — about 47 miles southeast of the Indonesian capital, Jakarta.
