Deadly earthquake hits Iran

An Iranian government official said on Tuesday he expected hundreds of deaths from a major earthquake that struck Iran near the border with Pakistan.

 "It was the biggest earthquake in Iran in 40 years and we are expecting hundreds of dead," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity

The magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck southeastern Iran near the border with Pakistan, reportedly killing at least 45 people with casualties expected to rise, according multiple news sources.

Across the Gulf, people also evacuated shaking buildings in Qatar and Dubai, residents said. Dubai has the world's tallest tower, the 828-metre Burj Khalifa.

Also Last week, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit Iran killing at least 37 people and injuring 850 more in the country's southwest.
