Tremors could be felt as far away as in the UAE after a 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck Northern Iraq.
At least seven people have died and a number injured as the quake hit Iraq's Kurdish region near the Iranian border, as well as impacting Baghdad and villages across the border in Iran.
Initially thought to be a 7.2 magnitude earthquake, the incident was revised up to 7.3.
