A quake in southern Iran injured 15 people on Qeshm, an island in the southern Gulf close to where the tremor struck, state television reported on Wednesday without giving further details, reported Reuters.

Another state broadcaster, Press TV, reported an aftershock of 4.8 on the Richter scale following the stronger tremor earlier in the day southwest of the major port city of Bandar Abbas.

A news agency, ISNA, said power was cut on Qeshm island as a result of the quake.
