S. Korea postpones nationwide college exam after rare quake –

South Korean authorities took the unprecedented step of postponing nationwide college entrance exams after a rare 5.4-magnitude earthquake hit the southeast on Wednesday, sparking alarm in a country that seldom experiences significant tremors.

Seven people were injured, Seoul#8217;s public administration ministry said, but they warned that number could rise because the quake was shallow.

The most powerful quake recorded in the South was a 5.8-magnitude tremor that hit the southeastern city of Gyeongju in September last year.
