YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — The U.S. Geological Society is reporting a 5.8-magnitude aftershock has hit northern Myanmar hours.

It came after a strong earthquake Sunday morning damaged several Buddhist pagodas, collapsed a bridge and a gold mine and left 12 people feared dead.

There are no initial reports of casualties or damage from the latest aftershock Sunday evening.
