A powerful quake that hit southern Iran on Tuesday killed "at least 20 people," the official IRNA news agency reported, quoting a local health official.

"At least 20 bodies have been taken to the morgue" in the city of Khormoj, an unnamed hospital official told IRNA.

Khormoj, east of provincial capital Bushehr, is some 35 kilometres (21 miles) from the quake's epicenter at Kaki.
