Quake strikes near Iran nuclear power plant

Dec 27, 2019 17:00 IST

An earthquake struck Iran on Friday less than 50 kilometres from the country's only nuclear power plant. There were no immediate reports of any casualties or damage. The US Geological Survey said the 5.1 magnitude quake struck 44 kilometres from the southwestern city of Borazjan and at a depth of 38 kilometres. Iran's nuclear programme is at the centre of a dispute with the United States, which suspects Iran is trying to obtain a nuclear weapons capability, something the Islamic republic vehemently denies.
