    Magnitude 5.3 quake hits western Iran, dozens with minor injuries

     A magnitude 5.3 earthquake hit western Iran on Sunday (April 1), injuring at least 38 people, a spokesman for the country’s medical emergency services said.
    Most of the 38 were released after receiving treatment in hospitals in the affected province of Kermanshah, Mojtaba Khaledi told the semi-official news agency ISNA.
    Iranian news agencies said most of the injuries were minor, with some people being hurt on the head by falling items.
    A magnitude 7.3 earthquake that shook that area and neighbouring Iraq in November killed more than 600 people and injured more than 8,000.
