Two Czechs were hurt in an earthquake in Taiwan on Tuesday. The man and woman were staying at a hotel in the city of Hualien, which is near the epicentre of the 6.4-magnitude earthquake in the East China Sea.
The pair’s injuries were light and they did not have to be kept in hospital. They are in contact with their families, a representative of the Czech Economic and Cultural Office in Taiwan’s capital Taipei told the Czech News Agency.
Over 200 people were hurt in the earthquake, which killed at least four.
