Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 27
By Farhad Daneshvar – Trend:
Sever cold has purportedly killed at least three kids who survived the last year’s deadly earthquake in Iran’s western province of Kermanshah.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that a 17 year-old girl who suffered from physical disabilities as well as a 1.5 year-old infant are among the victims as extreme cold has blanketed the earthquake-hit area.
MP for Paveh County Shahab Naderi earlier warned against the rising number of the victims of the cold, urging the government to provide the people with shelter.
However, Governor General of Kermanshah Province Houshang Bazouvand earlier denied the reports on the death of people due to cold weather.
A 7.2 magnitude earthquake jolted the province last November killing about 600 and leaving more injured.
The earthquake destroyed a large number of residential units in the urban and rural areas of the province.
