The death toll from a powerful earthquake in Pakistan rose to at least 208 on Wednesday (September 25) after hundreds of mud houses collapsed on people in a remote area near the Iranian border, officials said. At least 373 people have been reported injured. The earthquake struck Pakistan's thinly populated province of Baluchistan on Tuesday and was felt across South Asia. The United States Geological Survey said the quake was 7.8 in magnitude.
