4 Killed in after 6.9 Magnitude Earthquake Hit Southern Philippines

Many are Feared Trapped Under Collapsed Buildings in Country’s 2nd Largest Island

The authorities in South Philippines are still searching for survivors following Sunday’s earthquake that hit the island of Mindanao.

The 6.9 magnitude earthquake left at least four people, including a 6-year-old girl dead and several others injured, local media reports.

The girl was inside her home when the building came down and killed her.

Many people are feared trapped inside the rubble after several buildings collapsed.

The country’s second-largest island, which is a popular tourist destination, has been hit by multiple earthquakes since October.
