QUAKE SHAKES IRAN

Muslim World

A 5.7 magnitude earthquake rattled the northeast Iranian city of Torbat-e Heydariyeh on July 30, injuring at least 110 people. Iran’s state TV said the quake also damaged several villages and temporarily disrupted communications. The earthquake occurred at around 6:20 p.m. local time (14:50 GMT) and rocked the city for about 10 seconds. Torbat-e Heydariyeh is in Razavi Khorasan province, about 445 miles (714 kilometres) east of Tehran. Iran is located on seismic fault lines and is prone to earthquakes. It experiences at least one slight earthquake every day on average. Earlier some 26,000 people were killed by a 6.6-magnitude quake that flattened the historic south-eastern city of Bam in the same region in 2003.
