A magnitude 6.6 earthquake has been felt across a number of major cities across south-west Asia, foreign media reports.

 The earthquake struck in Afghanistan, close to its border with Tajikistan.

The tremor was felt in Kabul, Islamabad, Lahore and Delhi, forcing residents to leave their homes.

In October 2015, a magnitude-7.5 quake in the same border area killed close to 300 people.
