A strong earthquake has rocked central Burma, with at least 12 people feared dead and dozens more injured.

The 6.8-magnitude quake struck some 120km (70 miles) north of the second-largest city of Mandalay, at a depth of 10km, the US Geological Survey said.

A bridge under construction collapsed in Shwebo, close to the epicentre, throwing workers into the river.
