Mexico earthquake leaves at least 2 dead

A powerful magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck Mexico early Thursday, causing at least two deaths, damaging buildings and setting off landslides, SIA refers to foreign media.

The earthquake struck at 1:19 a.m. near the epicentre of a magnitude 7.6 quake that hit three days earlier in the western state of Michoacan. It also caused two deaths.

The U.S. Geological Survey said Thursday's earthquake, like Monday's, was centred in the western state of Michoacan near the Pacific coast. The epicentre was about 46 kilometres south-southwest of Aguililla, Michoacan, at a depth of about 24.1 kilometres.

Michoacan's state government said the quake was felt throughout the state, but did not immediately report damage.
