Survivors of an earthquake that struck rural Pakistan earlier this week are still waiting for aid, an effort being hampered because militants in the region have been attacking government troops as they try to deliver relief supplies. The quake, which measured 7.7 in magnitude, has claimed more than 350 lives, injured more than 750, and damaged dozens of homes. Most of the victims were crushed when the walls of their mud brick houses caved in. Residents said the quake hit during the few hours of the day when the village had electricity, so many children were at home watching television.

Two days after the tremor struck, rescuers were still struggling to help survivors. The death toll from the quake reached in the hundreds on Thursday, with more than 500 people injured.
