Ravage na aardbeving Iran

Het dodental als gevolg van de dubbele aardbeving die zaterdag in Iran plaatshad is gestegen naar 306.  Zondag is de zoektocht naar overlevenden stopgezet. Bij de aardbevingen raakten meer dan drieduizend mensen gewond.

Sinds de aardbeving is het bergachtige noordoosten van Iran herhaaldelijk opgeschrikt door tientallen naschokken. In het gebied, nabij de grens met Azerbeidzjan en Armenië, wonen zo'n driehonderdduizend mensen. Iran ligt op meerdere breuklijnen. Er is gemiddeld minstens een aardbeving per dag. De overgrote meerderheid van de aardbevingen is echter zo licht dat ze niet eens worden opgemerkt.
