A magnitude 5.3 earthquake struck near the Iraqi Kurdish city of Sulaimaniya on Saturday, the US Geological Survey reported.
USGS said the quake occurred 71 km southeast of the city at a depth of 10 km.
Sulaimaniya’s seismic monitoring office said it took place near the town of Darbandikhan and was felt in several other towns nearby.
