  • Strong French earthquake injures four
Sharjah 24 – AFP: An unusually strong earthquake hit southeastern France on Monday, injuring four people, one of them seriously, authorities said.
A physicist at a geophysics institute the IPGP said that quakes of this strength are rare in that region, but warned of possible aftershocks and said people should leave fragile buildings.

The quake, with a magnitude of 5.4, was felt in a vast area between the cities of Lyon and Montelimar which are about 150 kilometres (93 miles) apart, the national seismological office said.
