SRINAGAR, India (AP) - Officials say a moderately strong earthquake has hit a mountainous region in Indian-controlled Kashmir, injuring at least nine people and damaging several buildings.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-5.4 earthquake struck today and was centered near the border between Indian-held Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh state to its south.
A local weather office official says the quake damaged at least four buildings, including two schools, and injured seven students and two teachers. It also disrupted cellphone communications.
The earthquake was also felt weakly in New Delhi and other parts of northern India.
