- Story Text: The Basilica of The Heart of Jesus Church in the Croatian capital of Zagreb suffered severe damage following an earthquake in the city on Sunday (March 22).
The Roman Catholic Basilica was designed by Croatian architect Janko Holjac and is dedicated to the Sacred Heart.
The earthquake, with a magnitude of 5.3, was the biggest to hit Zagreb in 140 years. It struck 6 km north of the city and was felt across the Western Balkans.
One teenager was critically injured and another minor was badly injured. The quake caused several fires and power blackouts in parts of the capital as well as physical damage to buildings.
