At least 11 people are suspected dead and around 129 injured after an earthquake measuring 5.7 hit northwest Tanzania.
The quake was recorded at a depth of 6 miles (10km) and located 27 miles (44km) from Bukoba, close to the western shore of Lake Victoria.
Tremors were felt as far off as Uganda and Kenya according to the US Geological Survey.
The biggest destruction was observed in the town of Bukoba. Images show collapsed structures and buildings due to the earthquake. Some homes in the area even caved in.
A statement from president John Magufuli’s office said he was “shocked by reports of the earthquake that caused the death of many people, injury to others and destruction of property.”
