The Albanian Defense Ministry says the death toll from Tuesday’s earthquake has now reached 26.

Some 650 people were injured, and rescuers are still digging through rubble in search of survivors.

The earthquake, with a magnitude of 6.4, brought down several apartment blocks in the city of Durres and a town close to the epicenter.

Authorities in Bosnia have canceled classes in several towns in a southern region that was hit by an earthquake.

The authorities on Wednesday called off the classes because some school buildings have been damaged in the earthquake, and for fear of aftershocks.

The magnitude-5.4 tremor on Tuesday came hours after a strong earthquake hit Albania, where at least 25 people died. The Bosnia tremor injured no one, but upset the residents and damaged dozens of buildings.
