Quake Hits Iran, Injures 30

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) said the temblor hit at 09:56 a.m. local time (06:26 GMT) and centered at32 miles north-northeast of Tabriz, a trading hub far from Iran‘s oil-producing areas and known nuclear facilities. It was the same epicenter of the twin earthquakes, measuring 6.4 and 6.3 in magnitude, that killed nearly 300 people and destroyed a number of villages in August.
The recent quake precipitated at least two aftershocks with magnitudes of 3.4 and 3.2.
