Earthquakes Strikes Villages in Northern Iran

Villages in northern Iran were struck Saturday by two earthquakes in close succession, leaving over 300 people dead and about 4,500 injured by collapsed buildings, rubble and debris. Iranian relief workers are pulling civilians out of fallen homes and buildings, and it has been reported that the majority of victims are women and children, as men were working outside the homes at the time of the quakes.
