More than 100 injured after earthquake rocks Albania

Residents of Albania’s capital surveyed damage, after an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.6 and an aftershock only slightly weaker shook the city. The Defence Ministry said it was the most powerful quake in Albania in the last 30 years. The Health Ministry said 105 people had been treated for injuries in Tirana and Durres. A total of 562 houses had various degrees of damage and 34 apartment buildings had cracks, which would be inspected by engineers to see if there was structural damages, official figures showed. Most were hurt while dashing out of their homes in panic and many of those injured have since been discharged after treatment.
