Earthquake hits Peru, kills nine

A 5.4-magnitude earthquake in southern Peru has killed at least nine people, including an American tourist.

Emergency workers are on their way to the affected area to search for survivors and provide mobile shelters.

The worst affected districts are Ichupampa, Yanque, Achoma and Maca.

At least 40 people are reported to have been injured.

Earthquakes are common in Peru. In 2007, almost 600 people died when an 8.0-magnitude quake hit the central coast area.
