Northwestern Afghanistan Wednesday was struck by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake.

The epicenter of the quake was located approximately 29 kilometers to the north of the country’s Herat province, the United States Geological Survey mentioned.

There were no early details on casualties caused by the latest quake, disaster management spokesman Janan Sayeeq told.

Rescue teams and volunteers have been working on the ground since Saturday to locate the quake’s survivors, which shook the province earlier, demolishing entire villages and affecting 12,000 people, the United Nations (UN) estimated.

Local and national officials have given conflicting counts of the number of dead and injured from the previous earthquakes, but the disaster ministry has said 2,053 people died.

“We can’t give exact numbers for dead and wounded as it is in flux,” said disaster management ministry spokesman Mullah Janan Sayeq.

The earlier earthquakes completely destroyed at least 11 villages in Herat province’s Zenda Jan district, according to the United Nations.
