#3 Three people dead from a 6.3 doesn't say much for Iranian building codes.

#4 Thirty people dead and 800 injured. If that had been in LA or Tokyo people would have shrugged and gone about their business.

Casualties resulting from relatively small earthquakes is a long-standing tradition in Iran, especially in the smaller cities and towns. Something they share with Pakistan.

And yes - it's due to a lack of building codes (and no small amount of pay-off if building codes do exist.)
