Iran earthquake survivors spend second night without shelter

Survivors of the devastating earthquake braved chilly weather, huddled around makeshift fires for a second night outdoors into Tuesday morning, as the government scrambled to get aid to the affected region.

Iranian officials said the search for survivors was largely over, while adding that the chances of finding any more survivors were extremely low. More than 400 people were killed and about 7,000 injured when the 7.3-magnitude earthquake rocked the mountainous region spanning Iran's western province of Kermanshah and Iraqi Kurdistan on Sunday evening.
