The European Union said Saturday that humanitarian agencies were having difficulty reaching the South Asian region badly hit by a powerful earthquake, but urged them to go and said the EU would provide financing. The United Nations sent an emergency coordination team from Geneva, due to be on the ground in Pakistan early Sunday to set up a center for coordinating its own emergency response. The magnitude 7.6 earthquake jolted South Asia on Saturday, killing at least 2,300 people and injuring thousands more in Pakistan, Afghanistan and India. Several villages in northern Pakistan were buried in landslides triggered by the quake, the military said.
