Tuesday's earthquake was centred 56km deep below Carmen town on Bohol Island, about 400km southeast of the capital, Manila, and was felt across the region. The Philippine seismology agency reported at least 110 aftershocks.

Meanwhile, in Cebu among the casualties were four children, who were killed following a stampede, according to Dinky Soliman, the Philippine social welfare secretary.

At least two tall buildings collapsed and other buildings, including a church and former town hall, were damaged.
