  • Shallow 6.1-magnitude quake hits Thai-Lao border
Sharjah24 – AFP: A shallow 6.1-magnitude earthquake hit northwestern Laos near the Thai border early Thursday, the United States Geological Survey reported, alarming locals who felt buildings shake as far away as Bangkok.
There were no immediate reports of damage after the quake hit at 6:50 am (2350 GMT Wednesday).

But tremors could be felt more than 700 kilometres (435 miles) away in the Thai capital, where Pope Francis is currently on a four-day visit.
