String of Earthquakes Strike Along Iran-Iraq Border, Rattle Baghdad

Eight shallow temblors within an hour thought to be aftershocks of a November quake that killed 530.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A series of eight earthquakes hit the Iran-Iraq border area and rattled even Baghdad and parts of the Iraqi countryside on Thursday, apparently aftershocks of a temblor in November that killed over 530 people. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The US Geological Survey said seven of the quakes struck near the Iraqi city of Mandali and an eighth struck near Mehran in western Iran. All struck within an hour, beginning at 6:59 a.m. Iran time.
