Tremors shake Mozambique

Two tremors shook central Mozambique yesterday in what officials described as aftershocks of a powerful earthquake that killed four people in the country last month. No deaths or injuries were reported from the tremors, which occurred about two hours apart in the central province of Manica, the same region that was hit by the February 23rd earthquake. The first tremor measured 5-point-3 on the Richter scale, while the second measured 5-point-6. Mineral Resources Minister Esperanca Bias says there was a huge move of tectonic plates after the February quake, and aftershocks will continue until the plates stabilize.
