Aram…let's start with the earthquake…what's the latest?

Well Semin… Iran's state-run news agency says the death toll from Sunday's 7.3 magnitude earthquake stands at more than 530.
It was already marked as the deadliest tremor in the world this year when the death toll reached 450.
The country's president, Hassan Rouhani, travelled on Tuesday to Kermanshah, the area hardest hit and a day of mourning was announced.
Tens of thousands of people are still desperately in need of help and survivors in the most remote parts of Iran are complaining about the slow pace of the relief effort.
Temperatures in the mountainous region near the border with Iraq are close to freezing at night.
Iranian aid officials say thousands of people do now have emergency shelter, but many thousands more do not.
They now have to sleep outdoors for the third night in a row.
There have also been complaints about the poor quality of government-built buildings that had collapsed, while privately-built ones remained standing.
Rouhani said he would "find the culprits" responsible.
