Iran earthquake survivors plead for help as death toll rises
Iranians living outdoors in bitterly cold temperatures after an earthquake are making desperate pleas for help.
About 440 people were killed and about 7,000 injured when the quake hit near the Iran-Iraq border on Sunday.
The government is scrambling to get aid to the worst-hit Kermanshah province, where hundreds of homes were destroyed.
President Hassan Rouhani, visiting the region, said state-built houses suffered more damage, and those responsible would be held accountable.
Temperatures in Kermanshah province fell close to freezing for the second night in succession. While visiting the region on Tuesday, a national day of mourning, President Hassan Rouhani pointed out that many privately-built homes appeared to have been spared damage.
