    Earlier in the day, the Turkish authorities stated that at least nine people died, while 37 were injured after a magnitude 5.7 earthquake struck the Iranian-Turkish border.

    The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported on Sunday evening that another earthquake of magnitude 5.8 has struck the Turkey-Iran border region.

    The tremors come hours after a magnitude 5.7 earthquake that struck west of the Iranian city of Khoy and affected villages in the Turkish province of Van.

    As a result of the earthquake, nine people have died, while 37 sustained injuries in Turkey.

    The Iranian authorities, in their turn, reported that the earthquake affected 43 villages in the mountainous Qotour area, injuring at least 75 people, six of whom were hospitalised.
