More than 80 aftershocks have hit south-west Iran following Tuesday's 6.1 magnitude earthquake, which killed at least 37 people and injured 850.

Twelve villages were completely destroyed and terrified residents spent the night in the open, reports say.

Iran's Red Crescent says the search and rescue operation is now over and affected families are being relocated.
