Korea plans to provide $200,000 in humanitarian aid to the Philippines, which was struck by a deadly earthquake last week, the foreign ministry said Tuesday.

A 7.1-magnitude quake hit the northern Philippine island of Luzon on July 27, reportedly killing 10, injuring over 370 and displacing thousands as of Monday.

The ministry said it hopes the emergency relief could help quake victims and restore the disaster-stricken region. (Yonhap)
