Several people have been reportedly killed when an earthquake measuring 5.7 hit northwest Tanzania on Saturday.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake struck at 12:27 GMT, 43 km from Bukoba, a city on the western shore of Lake Victoria, at a depth of 10 km.
The incident was confirmed by the office of the President John Magufuli, saying in a statement that several people had died, but gave no toll.
Although a local newspaper said the quake had killed at least 10 people and injured at least 100 in Bukoba, quoting a local police commander.
Tanzania is prone to earthquakes as it sits on a tectonic zone that stretches thousands of miles from the Middle East to southeastern Africa, and contains many dormant and active volcanoes.
