Most Earthquake prone countries in the world

#5. Pakistan

Another earthquake prone country is Pakistan, which is geologically located in the Indus-Tsangpo Suture Zone, which is roughly 200 km north of the Himalaya Front and is defined by an exposed ophiolite chain along its southern margin. This region has the highest rates of seismicity and largest earthquakes in the Himalaya region, caused mainly by movement on thrust faults. The magnitude 7.6 quake that struck the Kashmir region of Pakistan in October 2005 killed more than 73,000 people, many in remote parts of the country, not dense urban centers like Islamabad. More recently, in September 2013, a powerful earthquake of magnitude 7.7 Richter scale had killed at least 825 people while injuring hundreds of others, causing immense damage to life and property.
