Over 400 killed in temblor on Iran-Iraq border

| | Tehran:

A powerful 7.3 magnitude earthquake near the Iraq-Iran border killed over 400 people across both countries, sent residents fleeing their homes at night, and was felt as far away as the Mediterranean coast, authorities said Monday.

Iran’s western Kermanshah province bore the brunt of the temblor on Sunday night, with authorities saying the quake killed 407 people in the country and injured 6,700 others. Kermanshah is a rural, mountainous region, where residents rely mainly on farming.

The quake was centred 31 kilometres outside the eastern Iraqi city of Halabja, according to the most recent measurements from the US Geological Survey.
