Doctors warn that a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Balochistan may have cost the lives of up to 700 people.
“We have lost everything, even our food is now buried under mud and water from underground channels is now undrinkable because of excessive mud in it due to the earthquake,” Noor Ahmed, a 45-year-old farmer, told AFP.
Up to 700 people may have been killed in an earthquake which destroyed thousands of homes and wiped out entire villages in a remote province in Pakistan, doctors have warned
The doctor in charge of the largest hospital close to the epicentre in Balochistan told The Daily Telegraph his staff were working in chaotic conditions and with poor facilities to save lives but many victims remain stranded in remote villages beyond the reach of the rescue services.
