ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - An earthquake in southern Pakistan has brought down walls and shaken towns, causing some injuries.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the temblor, with a preliminary magnitude of 4.3, struck some 7.5 miles north of Nawabshah on Friday. The USGS says the quake had a depth of 9.7 miles.

Local television stations in Pakistan reported that walls came down and several people suffered injuries in the quake.

Emergency officials in the area could not be immediately reached.

Pakistan is often hit by earthquakes. In September 2013, a 7.7-magnitude quake struck its province of Baluchistan, killing at least 376 people and pushing a new island up in the Arabian Sea.
