An earthquake hits Iran

Tremors were felt as far away as India. This was the second quake to strike Iran in less than a week. On April 9th, a different quake struck close to the Bushehr nuclear power station. Ahmad Sadri, a professor of sociology at Lake Forest College and translator of The Shahnameh, a book of ancient heroic Persian tales, talks with Worldview about the damage and the impact of the quake on Iran.
