Quake hits Zarand in southeastern Iran

Tehran, Sept 25, IRNA-A mild earthquake measuring 3.9 on the Richter scale shook the outskirts of Zarand city in Kerman province, southeastern Iran, Saturday night.

According to the Kerman-based seismological base affiliated to Tehran University, the quake hit the area at 23:24 hours local time (19:54 GMT).

No reports have been received on possible damage to property.

Quakes of various intensities have recently hit cities and towns of Kerman province.
