Another quake hits southeast Iran

(MENAFN)Iranian state media reported the injuring of 15 people and the collapse of walls of some houses, when an earthquake of magnitude 6.2 hit Kerman province in southeast Iran on Tuesday.

According to state TV, the quake struck near the town of Hojdak, and the US geological survey recorded its magnitude as 6.1 and said it struck at a depth of 57km.

Iran seems to not rest from earthquakes, as another quake was reported at 6.0 and the USGS reported at 5.4, hitting western Iran on Monday, in the same region where a magnitude 7.3 earthquake killed at least 530 people last month.

Rivals of President Hassan Rouhani said the government's response to last month's quake as too slow and insufficient.
