Moderate 5.9 magnitude quake hits NW Pakistan
by Staff Writers
Peshawar, Pakistan (AFP) Feb 21, 2016


A moderate 5.9-magnitude earthquake shook northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, with tremors felt in different cities, but officials said there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.

The epicentre was in the Hindu Kush mountain range inside Afghanistan at a depth of 157 kilometres (97 miles), senior Pakistani meteorological official Mushtaq Shah told AFP.

The quake was felt in different northwestern cities and tribal regions including Upper Dir, Lower Dir, Swat and Bajaur.

The US Geological Survey put the magnitude at 5.5

In October last year a 7.5-magnitude quake ripped across Pakistan and Afghanistan, killing almost 400 people and flattening buildings in rugged terrain that impeded relief efforts.
