A 7.2-magnitude earthquake was recorded on the border of Iran and Pakistan at 2.45pm, according to the European-Mediterranean Seismology Centre.

It follows a powerful earthquake that struck close to Iran's only nuclear power station on Tuesday last week, killing 37 people and injuring 850 as it destroyed homes and devastated two small villages.

The 6.3 magnitude quake totally destroyed one village, a Red Crescent official told the Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA), but the nearby Bushehr nuclear plant was undamaged, according to Iranian officials and the Russian company that built it.
