ASHGABAT, Dec 7 (Reuters) - Fresh tremors rocked Turkmenistan on Thursday, a day after the Central Asian state was hit by a powerful earthquake but officials said it caused no casualties or significant damage.
A spokesman for Turkmenistan's national civil defence unit told Reuters that mild tremors had been recorded at 0353 GMT in the oil producing towns of Balkanabad and Kazanzhik, 500 km (310 miles) west of the capital Ashgabat.
