Some people in northern Kuwait felt earthquake that struck an area near Iran-Iraq borders on Sunday, measuring 5.9 degrees on Richter scale, Director of the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research's (KISR) National Siesmological Network said.

Dr. Abdullah Al-Enezi said in a statement people in northern Kuwait felt the tremor at 5:15 p.m. No one was hurt nor material damage was reported.

The earthquake hit Gilangharb city in Iran's western Kermanshah province, Iran's Seismological Center said earlier. The quake took place at 5:11 p.m. local time, with a depth of 10 km, Tehran University's center said in an online release.
