Residents of an ancient town in Spain comfort each other after an earthquake jolted the area. At least 10 people were killed.
A rare earthquake rocked the Spanish town of Lorca on Wednesday, killing 10 people.

The 5.3 magnitude earthquake damaged homes and historic buildings.

Some reports say the earthquake sent tremors through the popular touristic region of Murcia.

The U.S Geological Survey said the epicenter was one kilometer below the ground. A milder quake of 4.5 magnitude had hit the town shortly before.

The Deputy Prime Minister will travel to the town this week to examine the damage.

Lorca, which has a population of about 90,000 people, dates back to the Bronze Age and probably gained its name from the Romans.

The last fatal earthquake to hit Spain was in 1997, when one person was killed.
