Iranian TV airs footage on Wednesday of areas damaged by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake the previous day. At least 37 people were killed and hundreds were injured. Iranian media reported that two small villages were devastated by the tremor. But the Bushehr nuclear power plant, around 100km from the epicentre of the quake was undamaged, according to a programme manager there. He said the power station was built to withstand tremors up to a magnitude of eight. With over 700 homes destroyed many Iranians were left traumatised by the quake.
