Iran earthquake kills at least 32

At least 32 people have been killed and 800 injured, after a 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck near Iran’s only nuclear power station.

The quake has completely destroyed one village but the nearby Bushehr nuclear plant is reportedly undamaged.

The aftershocks were also felt in Dubai, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates.

Officials say the death toll is expected to rise as they begin to sort through the rubble, with the area home to around 12,000 residents.
