Quake kills one in Bosnia

A strong earthquake in Bosnia has killed at least one person, injured several others and prompted hundreds to flee from their homes.

The magnitude 5.7 earthquake hit 42km southeast of the city of Mostar at 11.07pm local time on Saturday, the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre said.

The quake was at a depth of 5km.

A 28-year-old woman died from injuries and her parents were injured after a rock dislodged by the earthquake slammed into their family home in the city of Stolac, near Mostar, authorities said.

The earthquake was felt throughout the country and in neighbouring Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro.
