April 10, 2016, 2:06 pm

A magnitude 6.6 earthquake has been felt across a number of major cities across south-west Asia. The earthquake struck in Afghanistan, close to its border with Tajikistan, at 10:28 GMT, according to the US Geological Survey.

There are reports the tremor was felt in Kabul, Lahore and in Delhi, forcing residents to leave their homes. In October 2015, a magnitude-7.5 quake in the same area killed close to 300 people.
