A moderate earthquake jolted an area along Pakistan's border with neighboring Iran on Wednesday, but there were no reports of injuries or any damage.

The magnitude 5.1 quake that hit at 4:27 am (0457 IST) was centered somewhere on the Pakistan-Iran border, about 1,200 kilometers west of the northwestern city of Peshawar, said Nasir Mahmood, assistant meteorologist at the state-run Seismological Centre in Peshawar.

Mahmood did not have information on where exactly the tremor was centered in the frontier region.

Earthquakes are commonly felt in Pakistan.

On October 8, a magnitude 7.6 quake struck the country's northwest and its portion of the divided Himalayan region of Kashmir, killing more than 80,000 people and leaving more than three million others homeless.

Peshawar is about 150 kilometers northwest of the capital, Islamabad.
