 6.3 magnitude earthquake injures over 600 in Iran



People including rescue personnel conduct search and rescue work following a 7.3-magnitude earthquake at Sarpol-e Zahab in Iran's Kermanshah province on November 13, 2017.

 At least 164 people were killed and 1,600 more injured when a 7.3-magnitude earthquake shook the mountainous Iran-Iraq border triggering landslides that were hindering rescue efforts, officials said.

A 6.3 magnitude earthquake on Iranís western border with Iraq injured more than 600 people, most suffering minor wounds, state television said on Monday, but no fatalities had been reported.

The Sunday night earthquake was felt in at least seven provinces of Iran, but most strongly in Kermanshah, where in 2017, 600 people were killed and thousands injured in Iranís deadliest earthquake in more than a decade.

ďThe number of wounded people has reached 646. Most of them were not hospitalised because of the slight injuries,Ē media quoted officials as saying.

The head of Iranís Red Crescent Society, Mahmoud Nasab, told TV that there were no fatalities.


Media aired footage of damaged houses in the town of Sarpol-e Zahab, where some people still remain homeless following last yearís 7.3 magnitude earthquake.

Iranís state news agency said two earthquakes measuring 5.2 and 4.6 on the Richter scale jolted Sarpol-e Zahab on Monday morning.

Fears of aftershocks forced many people to spend the night out in the streets in cold weather.

The quake triggered landslides in some areas, but Iranian authorities said rescue teams had access to all towns and villages.

Iran sits astride major fault lines and is prone to frequent tremors.

In 2003, a 6.6 magnitude quake in Kerman province killed 31,000 people and flattened the historic city of Bam.

Sundayís tremor was also felt in Kuwait and the Iraqi capital Baghdad as well as in Erbil in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region and other Iraqi provinces, but no damage was reported.
