Iranian state TV says at least 40 people have been killed by a major earthquake near the Iran-Pakistan border.

Press TV gave no further details on the extent of damage in the sparsely populated areas. But the quake shook buildings as far away as New Delhi and Gulf cities of Dubai and Bahrain.

Iran's seismological center said the 7.5 magnitude earthquake was centered near Saravan, a sparsely populated area about 48 kilometers (26 miles) from the Pakistani border. The U.S. Geological Survey put the preliminary magnitude at 7.8 and at a depth of 15.2 kilometers (nine miles).

The quake struck less than a week after a 6.1 magnitude quake hit near Bushehr, on Iran's Persian Gulf coast, killing at least 37 people.

St. Louis-based Fleet Feet Running Stores sent a team of 11 runners to the Boston Marathon.

Director of training, Brandi Barbre tells KTRS News that they were worried about some of their runners right after the blasts. "A couple of people were a few hours late, because they were actually crossing the finish line right when, kind of, the explosions went off.  As far as health-wise, they're safe and back in their hotel.  And they way I understand it, ready to come home."

 

The Fleet Feet runners, like many in the area around the blast zone, were locked down inside their hotel for the night.  The company says the runners are making arrangements to come home later Tuesday.

Veteran St. Louis runner and coach, Flavia Beretta Bader says, "at one moment I was celebrating a great day of running and in a second it turned tragic, the worst thing I've ever seen." 

Two large race organizers in St. Louis, Go! St. Louis and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, both responded to Monday’s explosions in Boston.

Two weekends ago thousands lined the streets of downtown St. Louis to run the Go! St. Louis Marathon.

Go! workers issued a statement expressing sadness by Monday's events. They said they also understand the tremendous effort it takes to hold a marathon especially when it comes to ensuring the safety of runners and spectators.

39-year old Erica Hughes and her infant daughter, Alyja Hughes had been waiting for the bus.  The infant died at the hospital.  Both Jones and Hughes are hospitalized in serious condition.

   PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — The Pakistani Taliban have denied any role in the bombings at the Boston Marathon that killed at least three people and injured more than 140.

   The group's spokesman, Ahsanullah Ahsan, denied involvement in a telephone call with The Associated Press on Tuesday. He spoke from an undisclosed location.

   The main focus of the Pakistani Taliban has been a bloody insurgency against the Pakistani government because of its alliance with the United States and to enforce Islamic law in the country.

   But the group has threatened attacks in the U.S. as well, and claimed responsibility for a failed car bombing in New York's Times Square in 2010.

   The Times Square attacker, Faisal Shahzad, has admitted to getting training from the Pakistani Taliban in the country's tribal region.
