Rescuers battle to find survivors trapped under collapsed buildings after the 7.3 magnitude quake

A powerful magnitude-7.3 earthquake has rocked the northern border region between Iran and Iraq, killing more than 328 people in Iran and seven in Iraq and injuring thousands more.

Iran’s semi-official Isna news agency raised the death toll to 328 on Monday morning, after a quake struck the country’s western provinces at 9.20pm local time on Sunday. Local officials said the death toll would rise as search and rescue teams reached remote areas.
