Earthquake In Iran Kills 3, Injures 40

An earthquake in Iran measuring 5.9 magnitude has killed 3 people and injured 40 others.  The earthquake, felt in Tehran., struck on Friday south of the northern city of Damghan.

This makes the third earthquake  to strike a now nuclear Iran in 6 weeks.
Experts have warned that Iran’s propensity for earthquakes, its non-strict building codes, and the fact that several of its nuclear facilities are situated near densely-populated urban areas could have catastrophic consequences for Iran, its neighbors, and world oil prices. Experts estimate that an average of one serious tremor hits the country every day.
