    An earthquake in the southern Russian republic of Chechnya has killed at least 13 people and injured more than 100 more, officials say.

    The magnitude 4.7 quake damaged roads, power supplies and communications across the Caucasus, and was felt as far away as Georgia and Armenia.

    I sat through a 5.2 just a few weeks ago and there was no damage anywhere at all.

    This one seems odd. Maybe the depth was important again? Poor/ageing construction?
