Peste 400 de oameni au murit, iar alţii 7.000 au fost răniţi în urma cutremurului cu magnitudinea de 7,3 grade care a afectat regiunea muntoasă de la graniţa dintre Iran şi Irak, relatează site-ul BBC News.

Echipele de salvare depun eforturi pentru a salva cetăţenii prinşi sub derâmături. Cel mai grav afectat a fost districtul Sarpol-e Zahab, însă cutremurul s-a resimţit până şi în Turcia, Qatar şi Israel, fiind considerat cel mai mare cutremur din 2017.

Terenul muntos şi alunecările de teren provocate de seism îngreunează eforturile de căutare a supravieţuitorilor, au declarat oficialii iranieni.
