At least 20 have died and 300 were left injured in Pakistani-administered Kashmir, after a 5.8 magnitude earthquake cracked roads and caused structures to collapse on Tuesday.

Footage shot in the city of Jhelum shows cars buried in rubble and cracked roads in the aftermath of the quake.

"There are big cracks in the road, a large sized piece went into the canal. A petrol filling station collapsed on several cars which were damaged," said Muhammad Shakeel, a government worker.

Pakistan’s military sent medical support staff after the earthquake. Tremors could be felt as far as Islamabad and Delhi. The number of casualties and the full extent of the damage are not yet known.
