ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. At least 332 people were killed in Iran and Iraq on Sunday (November 13) when a powerful magnitude 7.3 earthquake hit the region, state media in the two countries said, as rescuers stepped up efforts overnight to find dozens trapped under rubble. Kurdish broadcasters showed injured people being rushed into hospitals in Iraq as others gathered along the streets wrapped in blankets. The most extensive damage in Iraq was in the town of Darbandikhan, 75 km (47 miles) east of the city of Sulaimaniyah in the semi-autonomous Kurdistan Region. More than 30 people were injured in the town, according to Kurdish Health Minister Rekawt Hama Rasheed.
