DUBAI (Reuters) - A magnitude 5.4 earthquake on Wednesday struck Iran’s southern province of Hormozgan, state television reported. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
Many houses in rural parts of the province are made of mud bricks and have been known to crumble easily under the impact of earthquakes.
