India has withdrawn a national tsunami alert issued after huge earthquakes struck off Indonesia, the Indian tsunami warning centre said.
"Thankfully, the danger has passed," a scientist at the centre told the Reuters news agency.
Disaster officials had earlier warned waves as high as 3.9 metres could hit parts of India's Andaman and Nicobar islands. A few thousand people were evacuated from the more vulnerable islands, a police official said.
