A powerful earthquake kills at least 280 in Afghanistan!

A magnitude 6.1 earthquake killed at least 280 people in Afghanistan early Wednesday, officials said, adding that hundreds of people were injured and that the number could rise as information flowed from remote mountain areas.

The quake struck 44 kilometers from the town of Khost, near the Pakistani border, according to the US Geological Survey (USGC). of the European Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC).

"It was strong," said a resident of the northwestern Pakistani city Peshawar.

Afghan media photos show houses have been reduced to rubble and bodies covered with blankets.
