Today in Top Story: A 5.9-magnitude earthquake devastates Afghanistan.

The quake struck a mountainous region of eastern Afghanistan early Wednesday. Stone and mud-brick homes were flattened. At least 1,000 people died. An estimated 1,500 others were injured. The quake was Afghanistan’s deadliest in two decades. The disaster heaps more misery on a country already struggling with poverty and hunger.
