Pakistan hit by 'mild' earthquake (5.1)

A moderate earthquake measuring 5.1 on the Richter scale has struck northern Pakistan, the meteorological department officals say. But there has been no immediate reports of damage or casualities, they say. The epicentre of the quake is said to be 200km (125 miles) north-east of Peshawar, the capital of the North West Frontier Province.

The earthquake struck at 1049 (0549 GMT) and was felt in several cities including the capital, Islamabad, as well as parts of Pakistan-administered Kashmir which was badly hit in October. The region has been hit by more than 1,500 aftershocks following the recent earthquake.
