Nine Dead as Earthquake hits Northeast India


At least nine people were killed and scores injured on Monday (Jan 4th) when a strong 6.7 magnitude earthquake struck northeast India, sending panicked residents fleeing into the streets even hundreds of kilometres away in Bangladesh.

Six were killed in India, the government said, while three people died in Bangladesh after suffering strokes or heart attacks following the early-morning quake. 

Authorities in India's Manipur state where the quake was centred said another 70 people had been injured by the quake, which damaged buildings in the capital Imphal.
