Croatia sends aid to Iran quake survivors

Wednesday, December 31, 2003 - ©2003 IranMania.com

ZAGREB, Dec 31 (AFP) - Croatia on Wednesday sent 13.5 tonnes of relief aid to victims of the earthquake in the Iranian city of Bam, the foreign ministry said.

A cargo plane left Zagreb with antibiotics, food, tents and blankets worth 1.3 million euros (1.6 million dollars), the ministry said in a statement.

It said a second shipment would be sent in the coming days to Bam, where Friday's quake killed an estimated 40,000 people and left thousands homeless in freezing conditions. The Croatian plane was due to land in the Iranian city of Zahedan, from where the aid would be taken to Bam. In neighbouring Bosnia, the Islamic community has sent 25,000 euros worth of urgent aid. Mosques across the country are due to say Friday prayers for the victims and collect further donations for them.
