Dozens receive minor injuries after 5.3-magnitude earthquake strikes western Iran

At least 38 people received minor injuries after a 5.3-magnitude earthquake hit Kermanshah province in western Iran, a spokesman for the country's medical emergency services said. The quake struck 9km from the town of Sarpol-e Zahab at a depth of 10km, the US Geological Survey said. The region was hit by deadly 7.3-magnitude quake in November 2017, which killed over 400 people and injured thousands more.
