A 5-year-old Iranian boy is recuperating in a Tehran hospital after being trapped in wreckage for 24 hours following last week's earthquake. Vahid Dastjerdi, head of the Red Crescent Society, said 50,000 tents are urgently needed in Zanjan and Gilan provinces, where the homes of hundreds of thousands of people were destroyed by the June 21 earthquake. Meanwhile, government agencies are concentrated on salvaging farmland and bringing life back to normal.
