Eight dead, 100 injured after massive earthquake in India [Pictures]

A 6.7 magnitude earthquake hit India’s remote northeast region before dawn on Monday, killing at least eight people, injuring 100 others and causing damage to several buildings.

Five were killed in India, the government said, while three people died in Bangladesh after suffering strokes or heart attacks following the early-morning quake.

Many of the deaths and injuries were caused by falling debris in and around Imphal, the capital of Manipur state, police said.

The powerful tremor left large cracks in walls and a portion of a popular market building collapsed in the state capital.
