ISLAMABAD, Jan 19 (Reuters) - A strong earthquake rocked northern Pakistan and parts of neighbouring Afghanistan on Wednesday, but there was no immediate report of damage, residents and officials said.
The quake hit at 12:10 p.m. (0710 GMT), jolting buildings in the Pakistani capital Islamabad and several other cities, and the Afghan capital Kabul, residents said.
A seismic centre in the northern Pakistani town of Peshawar said its preliminary analysis measured the quake strength at six on the Richter scale, which can cause widespread damage.
