A powerful earthquake struck a rugged, mountainous region of eastern Afghanistan early Wednesday, killing at least 1,000 people and injuring 1,500 more in the country’s deadliest quake in two decades. Officials warned that the already grim toll may still rise. The European seismological agency said the tremors were felt over 500km by 119 million people across Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.
