A 5.9-magnitude earthquake leveled seven villages in southern Iran Sunday, killing 10 people and injuring more than 50, provincial officials said. Heidar Alishvandi, the governor of Qeshm Island, was quoted by state-run television as saying that rescue teams were deployed to the affected areas. Iran's seismologic center said the epicenter was in the waters of the Persian Gulf between the port city of Bandar Abbas and Qeshm Island. The quake was felt in nearby Oman and the United Arab Emirates. Tehran's seismologic center said the quake measured magnitude-5.9. But the US Geological Survey said it was magnitude-6.1 and placed its epicenter about 58 kilometers (36 miles) southwest of Bandar Abbas.
