A 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck parts of Pakistan and the Afghanistan-Tajikistan border on Sunday afternoon.

The earthquake, which struck at 3.58 p.m, lasted for few minutes. According to the data from European Mediterranean Seismological Centre, the epicentre was across a 200 km area on the Afghanistan-Taikistan border.


It is reported that at least one person was killed and many others were injured in Pakistan.

The casualty was a result of tremors causing a landslide on the Karakar mountain range connecting Swat and Buner.

Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Swat and Chitral were among the affected areas.

In Islamabad, terrified residents fled their homes and offices as buildings swayed.

The tremors were also felt across Delhi and National Capital Region, Kashmir and Uttarakhand.



Following the quake, the metro service in Delhi was halted and resumed in thirty minutes.
