Tremors were felt in Doha's West Bay area after an earthquake measuring 5.9 struck the Iranian province of Bushehr on Thursday morning.
The Qatar Meteorology Department, part of the Civil Aviation Authority, confirmed this in an Arabic tweet, which said the "tremors felt by people in the Towers Zone of Dafna were due to the seismic waves caused by the earthquake of Iran".
Many Doha residents also discussed the tremors on social media. There was no immediate report of damage or injuries in Iran.
