At least one person has been killed and 70 injured after an earthquake hit various parts of the Nawabshah district in Pakistan. Roofs of several buildings collapsed, burying people under them.

The quake was around 5 in magnitude on the Richter scale (preliminary data suggested it was 4.3), the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.

The epicenter was 27 kilometers to the northeast of Nawabshah, at a depth of 15.6 kilometers.

At least 25 mud-brick homes collapsed in the quake-hit district. Authorities are currently assessing the damage.
Some of those injured were listed in critical condition at a government hospital, Roshan Ali Sheikh, the top official at the province's rehabilitation and disaster management department, told AP.

Police and rescue workers brought the injured to Nawabshah's Civil hospital, where an emergency has been declared.
Buildings were quickly evacuated as fear and panic gripped the area, Dawn.com reported.

Pakistan is frequently struck by earthquakes. In September 2013, a 7.7-magnitude quake hit the province of Baluchistan, killing at least 376 people.

Why do global politicians continue denying the presence and passage of planet Nibiru

  


Because they don't wear as much tin-foil in their hats as you do. The Nibiru myth not only lacks political support, it entirely lacks scientific support. Besides, the world didn't end in 2003, contrary to those who support the Nibiru myth.

Becom e a truther or a birther or the member of some other wacky group. The Nibiru nonsense is not only dead, it isn't even good nonsense.

We live in a DOG-EAT-DOG world, self serving beyond imagining, as the core values of the supposed leaders we have are non-existent, as from the outset, these were based on a corrupt, thieving, degenerate and manipulative profiteering financial 'system', which was designed to exploit control and harm common man globally, throughout the ages. A One World Government, enslaving the many was and continues to be the agenda of the criminal leaders of our planet. However, the reality of Extra Terrestrials can no longer be hidden as also the presence of the Second Sun in our skies, will soon be seen by all, but too late...

Why do global politicians continue denying the presence and passage of planet Nibiru, while it is the direct cause of all the dramatic and disastrous earth changes globally, the tempo of which is increasing daily and is the cause of the pole shift, which already started in the 'Eighties. Yes, TPTB, which include global Mega Corps, owned by mostly the US, UK, Europe and China, are criminally responsible for this ongoing ungodly destruction but powerless against planetary forces, despite the elite's huge fancy bunkers built with our tax dollars to save ONLY the few, from cataclysmic events beyond their control.
