Tuesday has been declared a national day of mourning in Iran for hundreds of people killed in Sunday's earthquake that also devastated parts of bordering Iraq. An estimated 70,000 people living close to the Iran-Iraq border have been made homeless and the government is struggling to get aid to those in need.

Iran is one of the most seismically active countries in the world.
