India has recorded its worst earthquake ever.
As the city of New Delhi slips into a deadly state of lockdown, the country has seen its worst quake since 1812.
The tremors of the 6.8-magnitude quake on Saturday hit at 8:50am local time, making it the strongest to hit the country since 1815.
It caused damage to hundreds of buildings, and residents of the capital have been ordered to stay indoors.
India has been battling a deadly outbreak of coronavirus, a disease caused by a coronaviruses closely related to the one that causes Ebola, and it has been in lockdown since Tuesday.
But the worst of the crisis, with its aftermath of massive power outages and widespread food shortages, has been largely forgotten.
This is the first time that India has experienced a serious earthquake since 1813, when the city was hit by a powerful quake.
