RUSSIAN RESCUERS FINISH WORKING IN IRAN
The rescuers of Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry (MChS) who worked in the Iranian city of Bam, destroyed by a strong earthquake, are completing their work on Tuesday. As RIA Novosti was told in the MChS information directorate, during the four days of their work the Russian rescuers extracted 109 bodies from under the shambles, while the physicians of the mobile hospitals rendered medical assistance to 430 Iranians and performed 109 surgeries. "Regrettably, we did not find any live people in the shambles, since all the houses in Bam were built of clay and bricks and were fully destroyed by the earthquake. There were no empty spaces in which people could find shelter", he added. The rescuers from Sweden left Bam on the day before, and the representatives of eleven countries, alongside the Russian rescuers, are finishing their work on Tuesday. According to the MChS representative, Iran's leadership spoke highly of the actions of the Russian rescuers and thanked them for their work. Two Il-76 aircraft of Russia's MChS carried 157 rescue workers with the necessary equipment to Iran on December 27. A field camp and mobile hospitals of Tsentrospas of the MChS and of the Zashchita (Defence) All-Russian centre of catastrophe medicine of Russia's Health Ministry were arranged on the spot.
