There were reports that the strongest quake was felt far across the border into Iraq, and IRNA said there were multiple aftershocks.

However, the situation was "under control" and no request for help had been sent to neighboring provinces, said Reza Mahmoudian, the provincial director-general of crisis management. President Hassan Rouhani ordered him to provide immediate relief to the earthquake-stricken region.

In November, a 7.3 magnitude quake hit villages and towns in Kermanshah Province along the mountainous border with Iraq, killing at least 620 people and injuring thousands of others.

Iran sits on a series of faults that cause earthquakes. In Iraq, nine people were killed and 550 were injured.
