Seven dead in Philippine’s earthquake

Seven people were killed in the strong earthquake that struck the southern Philippines on Friday, according to what a new toll showed today. Rescue teams continue to search for two missing people due to a landslide, according to “Agence France-Presse.”

The 6.7-magnitude earthquake that struck Mendana Island and in the south of the country on Friday afternoon led to the collapse of part of the roof of a shopping center in General Santos City.

The collapse of the mall’s roof led to the death of a woman and the injury of 19 others, local police official Ari Noel Kardos told AFP.
