  • Description

    Villagers squatted beside the ruins of their homes in Iran's Fars province this week, following Monday's killer earthquake in which nearly four thousand people died in the rubble of devastated buildings. The survivors searched the wreckage of their homes for bodies and other possible survivors, erected make-shift camps beside the ruins as bodies were carried out, and grieved for the dead. Irani authorities mounted massive rescue operations, and declined offers of foreign aid - for in a land shaken by earthquakes almost regularly, the Irani Government has learned to cope adequately with the disasters.
