A 5-meter (16-foot) earthquake rocked Peru on Tuesday, killing eight people and injuring at least 12.
The earthquake occurred near the town of La Coruña, according to the US Geological Survey.
The quake was centred just north of La Cumbre, about 45 kilometers (25 miles) north of the capital Lima, and about 70 kilometers (40 miles) southeast of the provincial capital, Guatapán.
The epicenter was about 70 km (45 miles) northwest of the town, the USGS said.
The USGS recorded at least eight aftershocks in Peru since January, with two occurring in the last 24 hours, according a report published by the agency.
The quake was the largest recorded in Peru during a five-month period, according the US Department of Commerce.
The epicenter is a shallow zone of low pressure that forms in a region of low-lying land, the agency said.
