Hundreds die in Pakistan quake

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION The death toll from a powerful earthquake in Pakistan rose to at least 208 on Wednesday (September 25) after hundreds of mud houses collapsed on people in a remote area near the Iranian border, officials said. At least 373 people have been reported injured. The earthquake struck Pakistan's thinly populated province of Baluchistan on Tuesday and was felt across South Asia. The United States Geological Survey said the quake was 7.8 in magnitude. It destroyed houses and cut communications with the worst affected district of Awaran, and was so powerful that it caused a small island to emerge from the sea just off the coastline in the Arabian Sea. The army deployed helicopters and hundreds of soldiers to help deal with the rescue effort in the huge, earthquake-prone province of deserts and rugged mountains bordering Iran and Afghanistan.
