Iran Accepts Japan Quake Aid, Declines U.S.
Iran is reported to have accepted at least 180,000 U.S. dollars in blankets, tents and other aid from Japan to help survivors cope with the aftermath of the 6.4-magnitude
earthquake in south-eastern Iran.
Iranian authorities had earlier said they expected to handle quake relief without international support.
A Reuters news agency report quotes U.S. and Iranian officials as saying Iran has declined an offer of quake aid from the United States.
Interior Minister Abdolvahed Moussavi Lari said the toll could rise to 550 from the early Tuesday quake, which reduced sections of villages in Kerman province to rubble.
