World is pulling together for Bam

Guardian:As the world realises the full extent of the tragedy unfolding in Iran, all of our thoughts and prayers will be with those who died, were injured or lost loved ones in the earthquake in Bam. Current estimates suggest that up to 20,000 people may have lost their lives in the disaster and that up to 50,000 may have been injured; more than 60 per cent of the city has been destroyed. Thousands of people have seen their homes collapse.

I had the famous Bam dates this morning, how tradgic this incident is.
