Pakistan to offer ‘no compensation’ to families of missing students
PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Pakistan’s government on Wednesday offered “no compensation” to families who lost loved ones to the earthquake and tsunami that struck the country in March and April of 2017.
Officials at the Ministry of Public Works and Highways told The Associated Press that it is working with affected families and will provide financial aid to help the affected people.
The quake and tsunami devastated the nation and displaced an estimated 5 million people.
The deadliest disaster in recent years in Pakistan was a 2009 quake that killed more than 1,300 people in the northwestern province of Baluchistan.
