Reuters: A 4.7-magnitude earthquake struck a southern region of Iran on Saturday and injured four people, the state broadcaster reported on its Web site. TEHRAN (Reuters) – A 4.7-magnitude earthquake struck a southern region of Iran on Saturday and injured four people, the state broadcaster reported on its Web site.

In a later report, state television reported a second quake near Tehran but there were no immediate casualty reports there.

The first quake struck in the morning around Haji Abad and Orzuiyeh, more than 900 km south of Tehran, the state broadcaster’s Web site said. It said the affected area included about 14 villages each with about 35 families.

The second quake had a magnitude of 4.5 and hit a region about 60 km south of the capital. It did not report any casualties in the tremor that struck around the town of Javadabad. Some witnesses in Tehran said they felt the tremor.

Iran, OPEC’s No. 2 oil producer, is regularly hit by earthquakes and is criss-crossed with fault lines. The region hit on Saturday is not close to Iran’s main oil producing areas.
