At least 28 people were killed after an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 hit popular island destinations in the Philippines on Tuesday, local authorities said.
Civil defense spokesman Maj. Reynaldo Balido said 15 of the deaths came from Cebu province, an urban and densely populated island.
The earthquake struck at a depth of about 35 km around Bohol Island to the north of Mindanao Island, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
