KAKI, Iran, May 6 (UPI) -- A 5.1-magnitude earthquake rattled Kaki in Iran's southern Bushehr province Monday, officials said. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

Seismologists put the country on a two-day "pay attention" alert, IRNA reported.

The United Arab Emirates, which felt some trembling last month from a couple of earthquakes in Iran, did not feel any tremors from Monday's quake in Kaki, Emirates 24/7 reported.
