ALBAWABA - A Pakistani journalist reported the exact moment of the earthquake that struck Afghanistan and Pakistan on Tuesday, while the earth was seen rattling under his feet.

A 6.5-magnitude earthquake jolted Afghanistan and Pakistan, leaving at least 13 people killed with the figure expected to rise, officials said.

Residents were seen thronging into the street from their homes in panic in quake-hit towns across northern Afghanistan and Pakistan.

In Pakistan, at least nine people died, including two children in the strong quake, while in Afghanistan, four people were killed and 70 others were injured.
