Earthquake kills 35, injures 150 in Pakistan

QUETTA, Pakistan — Thousands of people are homeless and desperate for aid in southwestern Pakistan following a deadly earthquake centered in neighboring Iran that toppled scores of mud brick homes and killed at least 36 people, officials said Wednesday.

The Pakistani army has deployed several hundred soldiers to help the relief effort in Mashkel, the area of Baluchistan Province hit hardest by Tuesday’s 7.8 magnitude earthquake. But many residents in Mashkel, where nearly all homes were destroyed, said they were unhappy with the government’s response.
