Pakistan is shaken by an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.3

Late Sunday night, a 5.3-magnitude earthquake shook the federal capital as well as a number of cities in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Mardan, Abbottabad, Swabi, Mohmand, Bajour, Buner, and the areas around them all felt the earthquakes.

People fled their homes in a state of terror and began reciting verses from the Holy Quran, yet there were no reports of casualties or damage to property anywhere in the nation.

Data from the US Geological Survey indicate that the earthquake’s epicentre was 10 kilometres beneath the surface in Afghanistan’s Koh Hindukush mountain range.
