Earthquake cluster strikes Iran-Iraq border


A series of earthquakes measuring five or more on the Richter scale have struck along the Iran-Iraq border, according to the US Geological Survey.
The region was rocked by a devastating quake last November, in which more than 400 people were killed and around 6,700 injured.

Up to five quakes were recorded in Iran’s western province of Kermanshah between 10am and 11am local time, Thursday. The strongest of the tremors was felt south of Sumar city, Iran, where seismic activity measured 5.5 on the Richter scale.
