27 camps are set up for quake survivors

A series of aftershocks struck as rescue workers continued digging through the ruins of the flattened city to find survivors of last Friday's earthquake, which measured 7.5 on the Richter scale. Twenty-seven camps have been set up to house the estimated 200,000 homeless, and "energetic measures" are being taken to ensure orderly distribution of food and blankets. Officials have had some difficulties distributing relief aid, and in some instances angry villagers overlooked in the hastily organized supply program hijacked trucks bringing food to the disaster area. There have also been sporadic cases of looting, but armed soldiers are now patrolling the streets to maintain law and order.
