ISLAMABAD - A major 7.4-magnitude earthquake hit southwest Pakistan on Wednesday, the US Geological Survey said.
The quake struck at around 1:20 am local time (2023 Tuesday GMT) at a depth of 10 kilometres (six miles) with its epicentre around 50 kilometres west of the town of Dalbandin, close to the border with Afghanistan.
The epicentre was around 300 kilometres (200 miles) east of the Iranian city of Zahedan, USGS said.
