African earthquakes

I've just seen on the BBC website that there has been a series of earthquakes, measuring upto 6.0 on the Richter Scale, in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda, in East Africa.

The most recent reports suggest that 38 people have been killed and more than 500 injured, but the death toll could yet rise as many people are thought to be trapped.

More information from the BBC here and from the USGS...
