At least 28 people have died in a magnitude-7.8 earthquake that was centered near the coast of Ecuador, the country's vice president, Jorge Glas, has said.

Glas said a state of emergency was now in effect and added that preventive evacuations in coastal areas were underway because of possible tsunami risks.

In Guayaquil, Ecuador's most populous city, emergency personnel recovered one body from the scene of a bridge collapse, a police officer told reporters with Ecuadorian TV stations.
