Reports are coming in of many soldiers killed after army barracks collapsed. Forensic experts say some corpses are never brought to morgue and just buried by relatives and they are not even counted in the offical death toll.

Only good news so far is that of those people injured no one is in critical condition and many were taken to hospitals in Tehran for treatment and recovery.
