Quake in Afghanista­n injures 10:


An earthquake shook a remote area of Afghanista­n, injuring at least 10 people, a Taliban official said. It struck in the same eastern region where an earthquake last month killed hundreds of people. The U.S. Geological Survey said the latest quake had a magnitude of 5.1. Last month’s temblor ignited yet another crisis in the struggling country, underscori­ng the Taliban’s limited capabiliti­es and internatio­nal isolation. United Nations officials said at the time that 770 people were killed; the Taliban put the death toll at 1,150.
