Iran nuclear plant ‘undamaged’ after 6.1 quake

A powerful 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck Iran near the Gulf port city of Bushehr, home to the country’s only nuclear power plant, killing at least three people, state television and officials have said, according to Al Jazeera. Bushehr Governer Fereydoon Hasanvand said the nuclear plant was undamaged by the quake. “No damage at all has been caused” to the plant, he told state television.

The Russian company that built the nuclear power station, 18 km (11 miles) south of Busehr, said the quake had been felt there but that operations at the plant were not affected.
