As many as 12 people are feared dead after a strong earthquake struck northern Burma today, causing a bridge and a goldmine to collapse, and damaging several ancient Buddhist pagodas.
The biggest single death toll was reported by a local administrative officer in Sintku township - on the Irrawaddy River near the quake's epicentre -who said six people had died there and another 11 were injured.
He said some of the dead were miners who were killed when a gold mine collapsed.
