Strong quake hits


QUETTA,PAKISTAN: A huge earthquake hit southwest Pakistan yesterday, killing at least 33 people, toppling scores of homes and sending people around the region rushing into the streets in panic. The 7.7-magnitude quake, centred in Baluchista­n province’s Awaran district, was felt as far afield as New Delhi and Dubai. It also injured at least 24 people, Pakistan’s National Disaster Management Authority said. The tremor which struck at 4.29pm (6.29 Thai time) destroyed dozens of houses in Awaran, 350km southwest of Baluchista­n’s capital, Quetta. AFP
