The European Center said that the earthquake that shook northern Algeria occurred at a depth of ten kilometers, according to the agency “Reuters”.
The Algerian authorities have not yet announced any human or material losses as a result of the earthquake.
Geologists say that several Algerian cities are located on a line prone to earthquakes that occur from time to time.
On the tenth of October 1980, the state of Chlef witnessed the most severe earthquake in the country, reaching 7 degrees on the Richter scale, which left more than 2,600 dead, along with thousands of other injured.
