A strong earthquake has rocked Croatia for a second day in a row, killing at least six people, injuring more than 20, and causing damage to buildings in cities and towns, including the capital, Zagreb. Television footage showed rescuers racing to pull people from the rubble of collapsed buildings on December 29 after the quake, which the European Mediterranean Seismological Center said reached 6.3 on the Richter scale. The GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences said the quake had a magnitude of 6.4 and hit at a depth of 10 kilometers around 46 kilometers southeast of Zagreb. Tremors were felt throughout the Balkan country and in neighboring Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Slovenia. Deputy Prime Minister Tomo Medved said the dead included a 12-year-old girl in the town of Petrinja and five others in a nearby village. Police said at least 20 people were slightly injured and six more severely wounded in the temblor.
