A magnitude 5.2 earthquake has struck a remote, mountainous region in southern Iran, injuring at least 31 people.
 
The earthquake which struck today (May 02) had disrupted power and communication lines.
 
It says the tremor rocked the town of Sisakht, some 700 kilometres south of Tehran, causing people to rush out into the streets.
 
The town has a population of 10,000. Footage showed cracks in the walls of buildings.
 
Iran is prone to near-daily earthquakes as it sits on major fault lines.
 
In November, a magnitude 7.2 quake hit western Iran, killing more than 600.
 
In 2003, a magnitude 6.6 quake flattened the historic city of Bam, killing 26,000 people.
