Breaking News Massive earthquake hits Pakistan

Quote
A major earthquake has struck a remote area in south-western Pakistan.
The United States Geological Survey reported that it measured 7.4 on the Richter scale.
The earthquake struck at 1:30 am local time on Wednesday in Baluchistan province near the border with Afghanistan.
Local TV reports said the earthquake was felt in several provinces in the country.
The quake was centred in Baluchistan province, the country's most sparsely populated area. It happened at a depth of some 50 miles.
Its exact epicentre was in a remote area some 200 miles south-west of the Baluchistan capital of Quetta, said chief Pakistani meteorologist Arif Mahmood.
