Islamabad, May 28 (PTI) At least three children were injured in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on Sunday after two earthquakes jolted the region, officials said.

According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), a powerful 6.0-magnitude earthquake jolted several parts of Pakistan at 10.50 am on Sunday, sparking panic and forcing residents to flee their homes.

The epicentre of the quake was the border region of Afghanistan and Tajikistan and it originated at a depth of 223 km, which considerably reduced its devastating impact.
