Hundreds of people have died in an earthquake that struck the southwestern province of Balochistan in Pakistan on Tuesday.

The army has been giving out food supplies and tents to victims of the disaster, which has destroyed many homes.

But attacks by separatist rebels, who have been fighting a decades long battle against the military which they say is "occupying" Balochistan, are threatening the relief effort.

Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder reports from the Awaran district of Balochistan.
