World Cup hosts rocked by earthquake

Kingston (Jamaica): Antigua and Trinidad, two countries that will host World Cup 2007 matches, were jolted on Wednesday by an early morning earthquake.

A quake with a magnitude of 5.1 on the open-ended Richter scale hit St John's just prior to 06:00 local time (1530 hrs IST) around the same time that Port of Spain was rattled by a quake with a magnitude of 4.3.

Disaster officials said there were no reports of injuries or damage.

Antigua is set to host Super Eight matches at the new Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, and Trinidad is the venue for four warm-up matches at the Frank Worrell Oval, as well as Group-B matches involving India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Bermuda.
