A powerful earthquake struck the northwestern Iranian city of Khoy and surround villages on January 28, killing at least three people, injuring more than 1,000 and forcing hundreds to seek shelter from freezing winter conditions. Khoy, with a population of around 200,000, was particularly affected, but local reports say dozens of villages in West Azerbaijan province were also hit. These pictures taken in Khoy on January 29 give a glimpse into the destruction caused by the quake and how the affected residents try to stay warm in sub-zero temperatures.
