Concern about vulnerable buildings in aftermath of Zagreb quake

Ljubljana, 14 April - The recent 5.4 magnitude earthquake in Zagreb, which destroyed close to 2,000 buildings, and the 125th anniversary of a devastating earthquake in Ljubljana have revived warnings about up to 56,000 problematic buildings in Slovenia. Estimates suggest a repeat of the 1895 quake would cause around 320 deaths and EUR 7 billion in damage today.
