 Every eighth building examined by structural engineers in the aftermath of Sunday's strong quakes in Zagreb has been declared not fit to live in, the Jutarnji List daily reported on Thursday.

To date, structural engineers have examined about 2,000 buildings and  made assessments for 1,001.

The daily says that 12% of the examined buildings have been labelled with a red warning, meaning that they are no longer safe to live in.

Aftershocks continue to be registered in the Croatian capital after three strong quakes rocked the area on Sunday morning, claiming one life and causing extensive damage to buildings.

According to seismological data published on Thursday morning, in the last 24 hours, nine tremors were recorded.
