    Strong Philippine quake injures dozens

    MANILA, PHILIPPINES (AP) – A strong earthquake rocked northern Philippines, injuring at least 26 people and forcing the closure of an international airport and the evacuation of patients in a hospital, officials said on Wednesday.

    The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said the Tuesday night’s magnitude 6.4 quake, which was set off by movement in a local fault, was centred nine kilometres (km) northwest of Lagayan town in Abra province at a depth of 11km.
