A strong 6.2-magnitude earthquake hit northeast Afghanistan on Friday, the US Geological Survey said, shaking buildings in the capital Kabul.

The quake struck 77 kilometres (48 miles) south-southeast of Feyzabad, near the border with Tajikistan and Pakistan, the USGS said.

The tremor was felt in Kabul, where buildings shook and electricity supplies were disrupted, an AFP reporter said.
