Earthquake: Iran calls off rescue operations as death toll rises to 530

The 7.3-magnitude quake that struck in the remote border area between Iran and Iraq late Sunday left thousands of people injured hundreds of villages destroyed.

The quake also reportedly killed an unspecified number of soldiers in an army garrison.

The quake struck on the Iran-Iraq border, causing most of its damage in Iran in spite of an epicentre on the Iraq side of the frontier.

Iranian weightlifter Kianoush Rostami has chose to put his Rio 2016 Olympic Games impressive achievement to good use, and auction his gold medal to give the money to families stricken in the magnitude-7.3 natural disaster that struck western Iran at the weekend.

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.

Instead, they'll be replaced with more inclusive language like "passengers", "riders", and "everyone". Conductors will also be reminding people about special events or greeting people on certain holidays.

Kermanshah, an nearly entirely Kurdish province nestled in the Zagros Mountains that run along the border with Iraq, suffered all of Iran's fatalities from quake that shook 14 of the country's 31 provinces.

However, Iranian officials said there were no longer any likelihood of finding survivors and called the rescue off.

Numerous damaged buildings were built during former hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad administration, though some of them were completed and handed over to the residents under Rouhani.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani arrived in the morning in the stricken area in Kermanshah province and promised that the government would "use all its power to resolve the problems in the shortest time".

The magnitude 7.3 quake was centered 19 miles (31 kilometers) outside the eastern Iraqi city of Halabja, according to the most recent measurements from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Iran has encountered multiple earthquakes in its past, as it sits atop of the Arabian and Eurasian tectonic plates.

I remember the quote: "Earthquakes don't kill people".

The worst damage appeared to be in the Kurdish town of Sarpol-e-Zahab in the western Iranian province of Kermanshah, which sits in the Zagros Mountains that divide the two countries.

Residents on Monday dug frantically through wrecked buildings for survivors.
