Iran-Iraq earthquake: Rouhani vows action over collapsed buildings


Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has vowed to "find the culprits" responsible for buildings collapsing in a 7.3-magnitude earthquake on Sunday. He suggested that government-built buildings had collapsed while privately-built ones remained standing. As he spoke in the worst-affected city, Sarpol-e Zahab, he gestured to two buildings, one of which had collapsed while the other had not. More than 400 people were killed and close to 8,000 injured in the quake.
