A 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck islands popular with tourists in the Philippines has killed at least 20 people, officials told Reuters.
Some people were killed while praying in a centuries-old church and many low-rise buildings crumbled and collapsed.
Rey Balido, a spokesman for the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, said at least 15 people died on the island of Cebu.
Residents ran from their homes in Cebu city, about 660 miles southeast of capital Manila, and hospitals moved patients to open spaces as aftershocks rocked the city of about 870,000 people.
