30,000 killed, 50,000 injured, more than 2.5 million need shelter

"We lost everything we had in just one minute. My shop is done. My house is gone and now we have to wait here without anything," said Mohammed Habib, who was with his five children, sitting on a road above the Jhelum river. Guardian

What compounded the tragedy in Bagh was the number of children and teenagers who perished. At least six educational institutions were destroyed, causing about 2,000 deaths. Mohammed Yousuf, 60, a retired headmaster, sobbed beside the body of his 21-year-old nephew, retrieved from the wreckage of a college. Mohammed Saghir had been sitting an examination when the building collapsed, leaving more than 1,000 students buried inside. Times
