Earthquake hits Iran oil

A small earthquake struck the Iranian port town of Assaluyeh, a centre for the petrochemical and oil industries and near the South Pars gas field, but did not appear to have caused any damage.
The 3.4-magnitude earthquake struck near Assaluyeh and surrounding villages. Many residents left their homes for fear of aftershocks. There were no casualties or major damage in Assaluyeh.
Iran is prone to earthquakes, sometimes with heavy casualties and serious damage to infrastructure.
