A strong aftershock shook Pakistan on Wednesday morning, rocking buildings in Islamabad for several seconds and rattling the nerves of people who survived this month's quake that killed more than 54,000. The aftershock at about 7:30 a.m. felt stronger than the 5.3-magnitude quake that was registered overnight, which had an epicenter in the mountainous region of Kashmir worst affected by the main Oct. 8 earthquake. No immediate damage was reported, but previous aftershocks have caused landslides that blocked crucial roads. Pakistan's seismological center in Peshawar said it had not yet calculated the magnitude.
