The death toll from a 5.1 magnitude earthquake in the southeastern Spanish town of Lorca rose to nine Thursday after one of those injured died, the regional government said.

A spokeswoman for the health services in the region of Murcia updated the toll from Wednesday's quake, which toppled buildings, cracked walls and sent masonry flying into the street.
