TASHKENT (AFP) - A 6.2 quake killed at least 13 people and wounded dozens as it tore down old houses in a remote border region in Central Asia's volatile Fergana Valley, Uzbek officials said Wednesday. The quake struck at 1:35 am (1935 GMT Tuesday) with the epicentre just inside Kyrgyzstan's Batken region, the US Geological Survey said, but it appeared that neighbouring Uzbekistan bore the brunt of the damage. The quake struck the border region at a depth of just 9.2 kilometres, rocking Fergana, a city of some 200,000 residents just 42 kilometres (25 miles) from the epicentre. As a result of the earthquake, some old buildings were destroyed in the Fergana region.
