Res­cuers spent yes­ter­day dig­ging through the de­bris of build­ings de­stroyed by a mag­ni­tude-7.3 earth­quake on Sun­day that killed more than 430 peo­ple in the bor­der re­gion of Iran and Iraq.

The worst dam­age was in the Kur­dish town of Sar­pol-e-Za­hab — an area re­built af­ter the ru­inous 1980s civil war.
