Aftershocks still felt hours after Pakistan quake

ISLAMABAD, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Strong aftershocks rattled the capitals of Pakistan, India and Afghanistan on Saturday afternoon, hours after a deadly quake shook the south Asian subcontinent.

Reuters correspondents in Islamabad, New Delhi and Kabul all reported feeling a strong aftershock at around 1045 GMT -- nearly seven hours after the main quake which was centred around 95 kms (60 miles) northeast of the Pakistan capital.

Pakistan officials say whole villages have been flattened by the quake and they fear thousands of casualties.
