A major earthquake with a magnitude of 6.5 on the Richter Scale struck Afghanistan on Tuesday. Its tremors were felt in Pakistan, Islamabad, and northern parts of India. At least 13 people have been killed, out of which 9 were in Pakistan, Reuters reported. Also, videos of panic-stricken people in Delhi-NCR stepping out of their homes during the earthquake went viral last night.
Meanwhile, a TV anchor in Pakistan remained composed and continued his live telecast during the earthquake. A video of him is going viral on Twitter and will send chills down your spine.
