A 5.0-magnitude earthquake has struck western Iran's Masjed Soleyman Province, the US Geological Survey said.

The quake was registered at 17:20 GMT on Friday 47 kilometers east of the city of Masjed Soleyman and the epicenter was located at a depth of 10 kilometers.

There have been no immediate reports about damage or casualties due to the earthquake and no tsunami threat has been reported.

Iran is located on major seismic faults and often experiences powerful tremors, with some of them being extremely devastating - like the 6.6-magnitude tremor that devastated the ancient city of Bam, killing almost 26,000 people in 2003.
