Pakistan: 5.2-magnitude earthquake hits NW part

Islamabad, Oct 9 (UNI) An earthquake of 5.2-magnitude jolted parts of northwestern Pakistan on Wednesday afternoon, local Met office said.

The Pakistan meteorological office said on its website that the epicenter of the quake which struck at 1544 hrs (local time) was determined in the Hindu Kush region in Afghanistan, with a focal depth of 180 km.

No loss of life or property has been immediately reported, but the quake created panic among the people who rushed out of buildings and on to the streets.
