Thirteen people have been killed and more than 100 are missing after a 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck Taiwan, causing a number of buildings to collapse.

Nine of the dead – including a 10-day-old girl – were killed when a 17-storey apartment building came down in the city of Tainan.

Two others were killed by falling objects elsewhere in the city.
