More than 30 people have been reported dead after an earthquake measuring 7.2 magnitude hit the central Philippines.
The US Geological Survey said the quake struck below the island of Bohol, known for its sandy beaches.
People were killed as structures collapsed in Bohol and nearby Cebu province. Several buildings and churches were damaged by the quake.
The quake struck at 08:12 (00:12GMT) on a national holiday in the country.
Officials said at least 16 people were confirmed dead in Bohol and 15 in Cebu, considered the Philippines’ second city. One was reported dead from the neighbouring island of Siquijor.
Dozens of others were also being treated for injuries.
At least five people died when part of a fishing port collapsed in Cebu, reports the Associated Press (AP) news agency. Two more people died and others were injured when a roof at a market fell, AP adds.
At least three people also died during a stampede at a sports complex in Cebu, provincial disaster chief Neil Sanchez said.
“There was panic when the quake happened and there was a rush toward the exit,” he told Agence-France Presse news agency.
The tremor triggered power outages in parts of Bohol, Cebu and neighbouring areas, say reports citing the country’s disaster management agency.
Cebu officials have declared a state of calamity in the province.
