    BEIJING: A 5.7-magnitude earthquake hit a remote area of Tibet in western China on Monday, the United States Geological Survey said. The quake struck at 5:23 a.m. 142 kilometers (88 miles) south-southeast of the city of Qamdo at a depth of 50 kilometers. The USGS said the population of the region, which borders northeast India, mostly lived in buildings that were highly vulnerable to earthquake shaking but estimated there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage from the tremor.
