Emergency accommodation for snow-hit Pakistanis in NE Iran

IRNA – Heavy snow hit forty-eight Pakistani passengers in Razavi Khorasan Province, northeastern Iran, who were helped out by the Iranian Red Crescent, said regional Red Crescent manager.

Severe snowstorm caused a technical problem for a bus of Pkisatni passengers Sunday night, said Hassan Goudarzi.

Upon being informed, a rescue team was deployed to the area to provide the passengers with accommodations, food, and blankets, Goudarzi said.

Snow has covered many cities and villages in Iran, and caused a lot of trouble in some areas.
