Iran's interior minister travels to earthquake-affected districts

(MENAFN) Iranian Interior Minister, Ahmad Vahidi, visited earthquake-stricken districts in the country's south on Saturday, following two severe earthquakes early in the morning.

Vahidi ordered the shipment of two large 150-person tents fitted with coolers by the IRGC Navy for the housing of the displaced people, calling for a speedy response to the earthquake's victims.

According to the minister, the injured have been sent to hospitals, and the government is supplying prefabricated housing units for quake victims because tents may not be ideal due to the hot weather.

Five individuals were murdered and 19 others were wounded in the two 6.1- and 6.3-magnitude earthquakes that struck the village of Sayeh Khosh in Bandar Khamir in southern Iran on Saturday, according to the governor-general of Hormuzgan Province.
