Deadly Afghanistan Quake Rocks SE Asia

The powerful earthquake that struck northeastern Afghanistan Monday also rattled people in Pakistan, India and Tajikistan, killing dozens, collapsing structures and creating panic.

Early reports from Afghan, Pakistani and Indian officials put the death toll more than 180, with hundreds of others injured.
