    Not heavily populated

    If I am not mistaken it is the Baloch region of Iran, mostly rural and underdeveloped. The Baloch people are poorly treated by both Pakistan and Iran

    Iran Earthquake 2013: Large Quake Reportedly Felt Across Middle East Region

    Press TV said the quake was centered near Saravan, about 50 kilometers (26 miles) from the Pakistani border. A previous report citing the country's seismological center placed the strength at magnitude 7.5, but it was apparently revised upward. The U.S. Geological Survey put the preliminary magnitude at 7.8 and at a depth of 15.2 kilometers (nine miles).

    Press TV said least 40 people were killed, but gave no other immediate details on the extent of damage or casualties. State-run Pakistan Television, meanwhile, said at least six people were killed on its side of the border and at least 47 others were injured. Up to 1,000 mud homes were damaged, it added.
