|1. Powerful earthquake shakes Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India|
|A 7.5-magnitude earthquake hit Monday in northern Afghanistan, with tremors felt in cities across the country, and in Pakistan and India. The full extent of the damage was not immediately known, but the powerful quake reportedly caused buildings to collapse. There were early reports of injuries near the epicenter in Afghanistan, and at least 43 deaths. People from Kabul to Islamabad described the quake as the most violent they had ever felt. “I thought it was the end of everything,” said one restaurant worker in Islamabad.
