An earthquake of magnitude 6.1 hit Iran on Tuesday, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).

No casualties were reported after the 57 km-deep earthquake hit the northeast of Kerman province.

This comes after another quake of magnitude 6 hit western Iran late on Monday, according to Iranian state media.

However, USGS reported the quake at 5.4 on Richter scale.

According to The Independent, no reports of deaths or injuries were reported from Monday’s quake.

Earlier last month, an earthquake of 7.3 magnitude hit the same region, which resulted in the death of at least 530.

Iraq, which shares a border with Iran, has been affected by earthquakes almost daily as it sits on major fault lines, leaving thousands injured and left without shelters.
