The Sunday night’s deadly earthquake, which has so far killed over 435 and wounded nearly 10,000 people, remained a top story today, with several newspapers covering the relief and rescue efforts and the budget allocated by the government to the reconstruction of the quake-hit areas.

A security conference held in Tehran and the remarks made by Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi on the ‘worrying’ proliferation of arms in the Middle East also received great coverage.

Among other top stories were Iran’s reaction to a UN human rights resolution against the Islamic Republic and a coup against Zimbabwean President Mugabe.
