Sarajevo — A series of small aftershocks occurred on Saturday after a magnitude 5.6 earthquake struck southern Bosnia on Friday night, killing one and injuring several.

A 27-year-old woman was killed and others were injured when a rock crashed down a hill and struck Stolac’s house. A nearby Mostar hospital reported admitting several people from the slightly injured area.
