State of Emergency Declared in Peru after deadly quake leaves dozens dead, injured or missing

At least a dozen people, including several children, were killed when a moderate earthquake struck. About a dozen others were injured, several missing, and hundreds displaced.

The earthquake, which measured 5.1 on the Richter scale, occurred at a depth of about 8km near the Andean village of Misca Saturday night, rattling southern Peru.

The quake razed the village, home to about 200 Quechua inhabitants.

“The population has lost everything,” said Peruvian President after visiting the village.

The quake also affected communities of Cajay, Canopato, Cusibamba Bajo, Mollejcato, Muyoc and Toray in the province of Paruro in Cuzco region, said reports.

In 2007, more than 500 people were killed in Ica ( a coastal province of  Peru) when a magnitude 7.9 earthquake struck.
