The New York Times reports that a magnitude 7.5 earthquake has hit Afghanistan and Pakistan, killing at least 122 people.
The earthquake was centered in the Hindu Kush mountain range, about 28 miles southwest of the Jurim district of Afghanistan and 160 miles northeast of the country's capital, Kabul. The earthquake's effects were felt as far away as New Delhi.
Officials in both countries have declared a state of emergency. Many of the affected provinces in Afghanistan have already suffered damage due to a recent offensive by the Taliban.
