A 5.8 magnitude earthquake has struck eastern Pakistan; the quake's epicentre was close to the city of Mirpur, Kashmir. Local officials have reported at least 23 people have been killed and over 300 are injured.

Pakistan's top meteorologist reported the epicentre of the quake was seven miles deep. Pakistan's military dispatched air and medical support teams to the worst affected areas for first response.

Tremors were felt as far away as the capitals of Pakistan (Islamabad) and India (Delhi). Aftershocks were also felt in the north west of the eastern Punjab province.
