The number of the people injured in the 6.2-magnitude quake in the southeastern province of Kerman has climbed to 29, a health official announced.

In 1990, a 7.4-magnitude quake in northern Iran killed 40,000 people, injured 300,000 and left half a million homeless, reducing dozens of towns and almost 2,000 villages to rubble. Hardline rivals of President Hassan Rouhani have criticised the government's reponse to last month's quake as too slow and inadequate. His opponents assert that the government response was not quick enough.
