A magnitude-7.5 earthquake hit northeastern Afghanistan on Monday, killing more than 150 people there and in neighboring Pakistan and flattening at least 1,400 buildings. 'More [deaths] are expected,' the Pakistani province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Chief Minister Pervez Khattak told state TV about three hours after the incident. At least 123 deaths were confirmed in his country, along with 956 injuries.

Some 23 more deaths were confirmed elsewhere in addition to 270 injuries.
