No Armenians found among Iran quake victims

PanARMENIAN.Net - No Armenians have been found among the victims of August 11 disastrous earthquakes in Iran, representative of RA embassy in Tehran said.

As he told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, the Armenian community didn’t suffer material losses, either, with interior of several Armenian churches damaged only.

Iran has raised the death toll from Saturday's (Aug. 11) twin earthquakes to 306, a day after rescuers called off the search for survivors.

Heath Minister Marzieh Vahid Dastjerdi told a session of parliament that the number jumped by about 50 after victims died in hospital. More than 3,000 people were injured in the earthquakes.

Scores of aftershocks have hit Iran's mountainous north-east since the 6.4 and 6.3 magnitude quakes hit the region, where some 300,000 people live near the borders with Azerbaijan and Armenia.
