EARTHQUAKE KILLS AT LEAST 30 IN SOUTHERN IRAN

Muslim World

A 6.1 magnitude earthquake killed at least 30 and injured 650 people in a sparsely populated area in southern Iran, state TV reported on 9 April. Authorities said it did not damage a nuclear plant in the region. The report said the earthquake struck the town of Kaki some 96 kilometers (60 miles) southeast of Bushehr, a town on the Persian Gulf that is home of Iran’s first nuclear power plant, built with Russian help. “No damage was done to Bushehr power plant,” Bushehr provincial governor Fereidoun Hasanvand told state TV. Some 650 people were taken to local hospitals, mostly with slight injuries, and water and electricity were cut to many residents, said Ebrahim Darvishi, governor of the worst-hit district Shonbeh.
