From BBC NEWS (Asia-Pacific):
A magnitude-6.8 earthquake struck in Burma at 1355 GMT on Thursday near the Lao and Thai borders. State radio in Burma said that 65 people had been killed and 111 injured in the quake and that 244 houses, 14 Buddhist monasteries and nine government buildings were damaged. There are fears the casualties could be much higher. The town of Tachileik and surrounding villages in Burma's Shan state appear to have borne the brunt of the earthquake.
