Photo Essay: Azarbaijan Earthquake by Ali Kaveh

Iranian women grieve for their families lost during the earthquakes in Azarbaijan in August 2012. The twin earthquakes measuring 6.2 and 6.3 on the Richter scale struck the provincial cities of Ahar and Varzeqan in the north-eastern province of Azarbaijan. This disaster damaged more than 230 villages, at least 260 people were killed and over 3,000 injured.
