IRGC Moves Iran's Biggest Portable Field Hospital to Kermanshah

At least 530 people were killed and over 8,000 others injured in the 7.3 magnitude natural disaster that rattled the border region between Iraq and Iran late on Sunday, according to the latest report of Iran's state news agency.

On the Iraq side of the border, 11 people were killed and the most damage was seen in Darbandikhan, near the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is scheduled to visit there Tuesday to assess damage and oversee rescue work.

A homeless young woman in Sarpol-e Zahab, one of the hardest-hit towns, told state TV that her family was exposed to the night cold because of lack of tents.

Television showed rescue workers combing through the rubble of dozens of villages immediately after the quake.
