MANILA (AFP) - Rescuers were fanning out across the central Philippines on Tuesday after a powerful earthquake triggered landslides, collapsed homes and killed dozens of people. The 6.8-magnitude quake hit a narrow strait between the heavily populated island provinces of Negros and Cebu around lunchtime on Monday with more than 200 aftershocks, some nearly as strong, causing further panic throughout the day. A total of 43 people were reported killed, but government officials warned the death toll may rise, with dozens of people said to be injured or missing and roads to mountainous areas impassable because of the landslides. Telephone communications were also cut off, leaving information from remote regions unobtainable.
