Kermanshah quake death toll rises to 620

The number of people who lost their lives in the western province of Kermanshah’s strong earthquake is still rising after one month.

According to Iranian Legal Medicine Organization, the death toll has risen to 620, IRNA reported.

On November 12, the 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck villages and towns in the province along the mountainous border with Iraq.

All 41 dead who were identified on Monday were from Sarpol-e Zahab.

Criss-crossed by several major fault lines, Iran is one of the most earthquake-prone countries in the world. In 2003, a 6.6-magnitude quake in Kerman Province killed 31,000 people, flattening the ancient city of Bam.
