Magnitude 6.2 quake hits southeastern Iran

Online exhibit

In 2003, a 6.6 magnitude tremor destroyed the historic city of Bam, killing 26,000 people.

According to authorities, there were no immediate reports of any casualties or damage.

"The rescue crews present in the area haven't reported any casualties or damage nonetheless." the head of rescue operations for the Red Crescent told state broadcaster IRINN.

Last month, the same region was struck by a 7.3-magnitude quake that left around 600 dead.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Saberi said that so far, 17 people have been taken to hospitals in Kerman following the strong quake. Earlier, President Hassan Rouhani highlighted his government's efforts in providing aid and temporary housing to the victims of last month's quake.

It occurred at a shallow depth of six miles and 34 miles north-east of Kerman, a provincial capital. And the closest cities in the areas like Nowsood and Kermanshah have shivered through this risky natural disaster.

Iran has experienced at least two other major disasters in recent years - one in 2005 that killed more than 600 people and another in 2012 that left some 300 dead.
