A strong earthquake has struck northern Burma, causing a
bridge and a gold mine to collapse, damaging several ancient
Buddhist pagodas and killing as many as 12 people.
An official from Burma's meteorological department said the magnitude-6.8 quake struck at 7.42am local time.
The region is a centre for mining. Some of the dead were miners who were killed when a gold mine collapsed.
