Bam... pow... crack.

The death toll in last week's earthquake in Bam, Iran, is expected to reach 50,000. The level of destruction there is apocalyptic... you can see for yourself, but be warned, it's rather disturbing.

Check out this photolog of a trip through Bam two months before the quake, and this satellite photo of Bam taken the day after.
