An earthquake of moderate intensity rattled southwestern Pakistan on Friday, but there were no reports of damage or injuries, an official said.

The magnitude-5.1 quake struck at 12:20 p.m. (07:20 GMT) and was felt in the Khuzdar and Sorab areas of Baluchistan province, said Mohammed Akram, an official with the state-run Seismological Center. The quake was centered in the Sorab area of Baluchistan, about 790 kilometers (490 miles) southwest of Peshawar, where the center is located.

Earthquakes are common in Pakistan. A massive earthquake measuring 7.6 struck northwestern Pakistan in 2005, leaving more than 80,000 people dead.
