Bam, World Heritage Site

Heartbreaking photographs of beautiful, pre-quake Bam (link from Bruce Sterling). Two-thirds of these buildings have been flattened by the earthquake. As I write the apparently well-organised Iranian authorities are announcing that they’ve already buried 30,000.

You can donate online to Oxfam’s Iran appeal here (they’ll help with water and sanitation) or to Unicef’s here (they’ll help with sanitation and health, principally for kids).
