A 5.7 magnitude earthquake on the Gulf coast near Iran's sole nuclear power plant killed seven people and injured 30 on Thursday, emergency response chief Hassan Qadami told state media.

"So far, there are seven dead and 30 injured receiving hospital treatment," the official IRNA news agency quoted Qadami as saying.

The quake's epicentre was near Borazjan, around 60 kilometres (35 miles) from Bushehr, where Iran has its Russian-built reactor.
