IRAN: EARTHQUAKE STRIKES AGAIN_Ada Nkong

Another earthquake, measuring 5.1 magnitude, struck the same region less than two weeks ago.


In a dramatic day for Iran, the two quakes happened just hours after the country fired a number of missiles at two Iraqi bases housing US troops, in retaliation for the US’ killing of a top Iranian general last week.

In the wake of Qasem Soleimani’s killing last week, Iran said it was ending its commitment to the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Opened in August 2010, Bushehr is not only Iran’s first nuclear plant but the first civilian reactor in the Middle East.
