    The Balkan nation has been shaken by a 6.0-magnitude tremor that came just days after the country went on lockdown in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The Croatian capital Zagreb is experiencing the aftermath of a major earthquake that destroyed buildings in the city and left some parts of it without electricity.

    ​The debris has also impeded traffic, as bricks and stones block roads and tram tracks.
