BUSHQUAKE? hits Iran once more, Feb. 22, 2005: earthquake hit city of Zarand, Iran

2005 Zarand earthquake hit the city of Zarand and several villages in Kerman province of Iran on February 22, 2005. The quake happened at 5:55 local time (2:25 UTC) and was measured at 6.4 on the Richter scale. The quake lasted for 11 seconds and at least 50 aftershocks were reported [1] ( http://www.isna.ir/Main/NewsView.aspx...) ranging in magnitude between 3.3 and 4.8. Zarand is located 740km southeast of Tehran.
in our ongoing ruminations on fake earthquakes, I noticed that no one had mentioned this recent large quake in Iran.
