Iran Rejects U.S. Aid After Earthquake
On August 12, 2012, the United States offered aid to Iran after two earthquakes reportedly hit some 230 villages near the northwest city of Tabriz on August 12. The early official Iranian reports cited more than 300 dead, 3,000 injured and some 16,000 left homeless. The United States has previously provided aid to Iran after earthquakes, notably after a 2003 quake devastated the historic city of Bam in southeast Iran. More than 26,000 were reportedly killed. The Bush administration dispatched search and rescue squads, aid coordinators and medical support.
