A DESTRUCTIVE EARTHQUAKE CAUSES MORE THAN 400 DEAD IN THE WEST OF IRAN

Tehran / More than 400 people have died and 6,700 have been injured in the powerful 7.3-magnitude earthquake that has devastated western Iran. In that area (the province of Kermanshah, border with Iraq), continue to rescue the rescue tasks to try to find survivors among the ruins.

Buildings turned to rubble, crushed vehicles and shops and closed schools were the bleak landscape of several towns in Kermanshah.

In the vicinity of the dilapidated buildings in the town of Sarpul Zahab, the most damaged, hundreds of people waited in anguish for news of their relatives.

Some people have seen how rescue teams took out the corpses of their relatives under the rubble.

Desolation and destruction have taken over the area, where thousands of troops from the relief and military teams have been sent.

Many of the injured have had to be transported by ambulance or helicopter to hospitals in other provinces.

The thousands of people affected by the earthquake are now preparing to spend a second night in the open in improvised camps, while lamenting everything lost in the earthquake.

From Tehran, Marina Villén from EFE Agency reports. (November 14, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
