Rescuers dug with their bare hands through the debris of buildings brought down by a powerful earthquake that killed more than 400 people in the once‑contested mountainous border region between Iraq and Iran.

Sunday night's magnitude 7.3 earthquake struck about 31 kilometres outside the eastern Iraqi city of Halabja, according to the most recent measurements from the US Geological Survey.
