Via the BBC: Dozens die in western Iran quakes

At least 50 people have been killed and 800 injured after several earthquakes in western Iran, local officials said.

The quakes, with magnitudes of up to 6.0, centred on remote villages between the industrial towns of Doroud and Boroujerd in the province of Lorestan.

About 330 villages have been damaged – some completely flattened, Lorestan’s disaster control committee chief said.

    The last major quake in Iran resulted in US aid. I wonder if there will be aid forthcoming now.
