Russian rescue team to wrap up in Iran

MOSCOW, December 30. /RIA NOVOSTI CORRESPONDENT/ -- The rescuers of Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry (MChS) who worked in the Iranian city of Bam, destroyed by a strong earthquake, are completing their work on Tuesday. As RIA Novosti was told in the MChS information directorate, during the four days of their work the Russian rescuers extracted 109 bodies of dead people from the shambles, while the physicians of the mobile hospitals rendered medical assistance to 430 Iranians and performed 109 surgeries. "Regrettably, we did not find any live people in the shambles, since all the houses in Bam were built of clay and bricks and were fully destroyed by the earthquake. There were no empty spaces in which people could find refuge", he added. The rescuers from Sweden left Bam the day before, and the representatives of eleven countries, alongside the Russian rescuers, are finishing their work on Tuesday. According to the MChS representative, Iran's leadership spoke highly of the Russian rescuers actions and thanked them for their work.
