Quake hits western Iran
Iran’s western governorate of Kermanshah was hit by a strong earthquake, Reuters quoted local media as saying. 

The rescue teams had been dispatched to the Kermanshah governorate that borders Iraq.

“The quake jolted the city of Sumar that is located between Ilam and Kermanshah governorates. So far, no fatalities or injuries have been reported,” a local official said.

Last year, a 7.3-magnitude earthquake hit villages and towns in Kermanshah governorate, killing 620 people and injuring thousands of others.
