Earthquake Jolts Southern Tibet, No Casualties
Phayul[Thursday, September 25, 2008 12:19]
An earthquake measuring 6.0 on Richter Scale hit southwestern Tibet Thursday near the Nepal-Tibet border. The earthquake struck at 9:47 a.m. (0147 GMT), according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties from the quake, which hit Zhongba county in Shigatse (Xigaze) prefecture. The epicenter of the quake lied 250 miles (400 kilometers) northwest of Katmandu, Nepal's capital.

A spokeswoman for the Zhongba government, who refused to give her name, said no injuries had been reported and local authorities were still investigating the situation.

The thinly populated mountainous region is about 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) west of Beijing.
