The 6.8 magnitude earthquake --with the epicentre in Afghanistan --also shook Pakistan, killing at least nine people in the country and injuring over 160 others. Three persons were also killed in Afghanistan.
Television footage showed panic-stricken citizens out on the streets. A video showing a TV anchor delivering news despite the studio shaking violently due to the earthquake in Pakistan has gone viral on social media. A user tweeted: "Pashto TV channel Mahshriq TV during the earthquake. Bravo anchor continued his live program in the ongoing earthquake."
