We drove through the worst affected areas, and there was damage all along the roads. This earthquake has caused devastation and despair.
More than 100 have died and 5,700 have been injured in an earthquake in China. Many were trapped under buildings near Ya'an in Sichuan.
A powerful earthquake struck China's south western Sichuan province today, leaving 157 dead and more than 5,700 injured.
An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5 jolted eastern Japan including the capital, Tokyo, on Sunday, the NHK public broadcaster and witnesses said.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage, and no tsunami warning was issued.
An earthquake has shaken buildings in the Japanese capital of Tokyo, according to witnesses.
A bystander filmed the collapse of of a 16th-century bell tower in Cebu City in the Philippines after an earthquake which hit 7.2 on the Richter scale.
The Basilica Minore del Santo Nino, which in English means the 'Basilica of the Holy Child', is the country's oldest church building and a remnant of the Spanish colonial era.
More than a dozen other churches in the region were damaged in the earthquake. At least 15 people died on the island of Cebu and at least 134 people were reported dead on the neighbouring Boho island.
At least 12 people have been killed in the latest earthquake to hit south-west Pakistan, according to reports by AFP, citing government officials.
A major earthquake rocked Pakistan's south west on Saturday, just days after another quake in the same region killed 359 people, officials said.
The Pakistani Meteorological Department measured the earthquake at 7.2 magnitude and said the epicentre was located about 90 miles west of Khuzdar.
There were no immediate reports of casualties, according to the deputy commissioner of Awaran district where both quakes were centred.
A 6.8-magnitude earthquake has hit south-west Pakistan, in a region where at least 359 people died in a quake earlier this week.
The US Geological Survey said the quake struck approximately 155 miles north of the port city of Karachi.
There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
People have walked on the island created by the deadly earthquake that hit Pakistan.
The earthquake was so powerful that it caused the seabed to rise, off Pakistan's Gwadar coastline.
This created a small, mountain-like island about 600 meters from the shore.

New aerial studies of the earth's surface could help predict where earthquakes and landslides might occur, according to scientists.
Specialist sensors carried by aeroplanes are being used to take measurements which allow experts to pinpoint areas of land which are changing shape as a result of the earth's plates moving.
Scientists from Edinburgh University used the data to investigate how these movements - known as tectonic activity - have impacted on hills in California's San Andreas Fault.
Simon Mudd, from Edinburgh University's School of Geosciences, said: "We are excited by our finding that growing landscapes have a distinct topographic signature that can be detected using improved remote sensing techniques.
"In tectonically active regions, such growing landscapes are associated with faults so our findings offer the potential of rapid and cost-effective detection of potentially hazardous areas."
