Earthquakes in Iran kill Hundreds of People, Many injured

Atleast 300 people have been killed after twin earthquakes devastated rural villages in northwest Iran on the weekend. Officials reported that most of them are women and children, and these have raised fears of disease outbreak.
About 3,037 people were injured, of whom 2,011 were given first aid at the scene and the rest were taken to hospital, where 700 surgeries were performed, Health Minister Marzieh Vahid told lawmakers in a report published on the parliament's website.
