Around 150 killed in Iran earth quake

Vastavam web:More than 140 people have been killed and at least 860 believed to have been injured by tremors in Iran’s Kermanshah province, according to state media, after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Iraq near to the Iran border.
Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency reported the death toll, with rescuers said to be stepping up efforts to find dozens trapped under rubble in both countries.
“There are still people under the rubble. We hope the number of dead and injured won’t rise too much, but it will rise,” Mojtaba Nikkerdar said.
