At least 14 people have died after yesterday’s powerful earthquake caused landslides in a remote region of Papua New Guinea (PNG), officials say. The 7.5-magnitude quake rattled villages and a large gold mine in the country’s Enga province on Monday morning. There are unconfirmed reports that the death toll could be as high as 30, with details of “extensive” damage emerging. The tremor caused ExxonMobil to shut its $19bn (€15bn) liquefied natural gas plant, PNG’s biggest export earner. A number of buildings collapsed and roads were blocked by the landslides. Some phone lines were also cut, Reuters news agency reports.
