Deadly earthquake in East Azerbaijan region of Iran

Members of Azerbaijani-American Council and Azerbaijan Society of America join all Azerbaijanis in grieving for the victims of the recent powerful earthquakes in East Azerbaijan province of Iran on Saturday, August 12, 2012. According to international news sources, at least 250 people were killed and over 2,000 were injured during the two magnitude 6.4 earthquakes that hit the towns and villages near the historic city of Tabriz.

With our hearts and minds on the side of our South Azerbaijani brethren, we call upon the Iranian authorities, all relevant international organizations and Azerbaijani communities abroad to assist survivors in need of emergency aid in the earthquake-affected areas.
