Myanmar 6.8 Earthquake-Photos

A picture taken close to Myanmar's northeastern city of Tachilek and released by the charity World Vision shows large cracks running along a road a day after an earthquake struck the area. At least 75 people were killed and hundreds left homeless on Friday after a strong earthquake hit Myanmar, as aid workers said it could be days before the extent of the damage becomes clear.

A magnitude 6.8 earthquake hit Myanmar on Thursday night.

I read in Yahoo News that Myanmar state radio announced Friday that 74 people had been killed and 111 injured in the quake, but was updating the total frequently.

This is the latest disaster that hit Myanmar.

Myanmar is also known as Burma.
