QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) — A Pakistani official says the death toll from a major quake that struck the country's southwest the day before has risen overnight to 182.
A spokesman for the chief secretary of Baluchistan province, Kamran Asad, gave the updated death toll on Wednesday. Previously, officials had put the death toll from Tuesday's quake at 39.
Another spokesman for the provincial government, Jan Mohammad Bulaidi, put the death toll as high as 216.
The conflicting death tolls are likely due to the difficulty in contacting local officials and people in the remote region.
The magnitude 7.7 quake struck in the district of Awaran in Pakistan's Baluchistan province.
