Afghanistan and Pakistan are both affected by a 6.1-magnitude earthquake

The US Geological Survey (USGS) said that an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.1 occurred early on Wednesday near Afghanistan and Pakistan.

According to the USGS, the earthquake was 51 kilometres deep and occurred around 44 kilometres (27 miles) from the city of Khost in southeast Afghanistan.

No immediate reports of deaths or damage have been made to date.

According to the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), around 119 million people in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India felt shaking across a distance of about 500 km.

“Massive EARTHQUAKE in Islamabad! Allah khair! I hope you’re all safe! Allah Taala protect us all. Amen,” said one of the Twitter users from Pakistan.

In addition to other parts of Pakistan, tremors were reported in Lahore, Multan, Quetta, and other cities.

The earthquake, according to The Namal, was felt for a brief period of time and caused a rush of people into the streets.

No loss of life and property was reported.

Several Pakistani cities, including Islamabad, Peshawar, Rawalpindi, and Multan, were shaken by a 5.0 magnitude earthquake last Friday.

According to a report by Geo News, the shocks were also felt in Faisalabad, Abbottabad, Swat, Buner, Kohat, and Malakand.
