  • Description

    INTRODUCTION: The Rumanian earthquake, and relief supplies from abroad have begun to arrive for the victims of last Friday (4 March) disaster in which thousands of people are feared to have died. Rumania had appealed to the United States, Britain, France and West Germany for a wide range of medical supplies including mobile operating theatres. The Swiss government has provided a team of "sniffer" dogs to help the army of rescue workers sifting through the rubble of shattered buildings. The earthquake, felt over a huge area of Europe, measured 7.2 on the Richter scale and caused destruction in six Rumanian counties. Here's a report on the scene in Bucharest on Monday (7 March).
