It was followed by a 5.4-magnitude tremor in the same region.
There were no immediate reports of casualties or property damage caused by the quake near the western city of Kermanshah.
At least 530 people were killed, and injured people were about 7,500. The quake had left around 328 people dead. "If there was a stressed fault that's ready to move, they happen like that until the stresses are relieved, so it's not too unusual".
The US Geological Survey said seven of the quakes struck near the Iraqi city of Mandali, 120km northeast of the Iraqi capital. The epicentre of the quake is said to be located close to the village of Hojedk in Kerman province.
According to Iran's official news agency IRNA, the quake rocked the village of Hojdaknear the city of Ravar.
