Survivors wait for food, aid after Pakistan quake
QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) - Hungry survivors dug through rubble to find food and thousands of survivors slept under the open sky or in makeshift shelters for a second night as the death toll from Pakistan's massive earthquake rose to 348 on Thursday.
Rescuers battled to reach remote areas of the impoverished region in the wake of Tuesday's magnitude 7.7 quake in south-western Baluchistan province.
The quake had flattened wide swathes of Awaran district where it was centered, leaving much of the population homeless.
The spokesman for the provincial government, Mr Jan Mohammad Bulaidi, said 348 people have been confirmed dead so far and 552 people had been injured.
