Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has arrived in the region hit by the deadliest earthquake in more than a decade. Speaking in Sulaimaniyah, he promised the government would do all it could to help with those who have suffered.>> On our way here, many told us they need tents and facilities for temporary presidents.
We will provide all the necessities for those who needs tents in those days and nights, so they can use them due to a lack of safety in their own houses. We will give a loan and a grant to all those who's houses either in villages or cities were damaged.
>> Rescue operations have now entered in areas of Iran hit by Sunday's 7.3 quake. At least 530 people have been killed, and thousands more injured, according to state television. The quake struck villages and towns in the mountainous area of Kermanshah province that borders Iraq, while many people were at home asleep.
At least 14 provinces in Iran were affected. State media said thousands were huddling in makeshift camps, while many others spent the second night in the open, for fear of more tremors, some 193 aftershocks. Survivors already in need of shelter, food and water are also battling against extremely cold weather.
Nearby hospitals have taken hundreds of injured and many of those affected have been transferred to Teheran. Rescue workers have spent hours digging people out of collapsed buildings. Images from state TV show the extent of the damage, cars smashed beneath rubble, and rescue dogs to find signs of life under the twisted remains of collapsed buildings.
Iranian officials say the chances of finding any more survivors were extremely low.
