  • Quake of 5.1 magnitude jolts southern Iran

AFP correspondents said the quakes were also felt across Iraq and in Iraqi Kurdistan bordering Iran. All the information could change as scientists examine the data.

Iranian state television reported people rushed out into the streets amid the temblors.

In November, a major 7.3 magnitude quake struck the same region, killing over 530 people and injuring thousands in Iran alone.

A series of moderate earthquakes shook Iran on Thursday but there were no immediate reports of victims or damage.

Another one was 5.2 magnitude at about 10:14 a.m. (0714 GMT), with 10 km depth, close to the first near Mandly, the USGS said. In Iraq, nine people were killed and 550 were injured, according to the United Nations.

An quake of the magnitude 4.1 on the Richter scale has jolted Iran's southeastern province of Kerman.

Iran is prone to near-daily quakes as it sits on major fault lines. In 2003, a 6.6 magnitude quake flattened the historic city of Bam, killing 26,000 people. According to the Azad News Agency, a crisis management team is being deployed to Kermanshah, although there are now no reports of any injuries.

Late Thursday afternoon, another 4.8 magnitude natural disaster struck in Kerman, according to the USGS.
