Aid workers have warned that some Afghans and Pakistanis made homeless by Monday's earthquake could die from exposure.

There is an urgent need for tents and blankets for those forced to spend a second night outdoors.

Children are especially at risk of succumbing to the extreme cold.

Pakistani media reported that thousands spent Tuesday night in near-freezing temperatures, reluctant to go back inside for fear of aftershocks.

At least 360 people are known to have died in both countries, but officials are warning the number will rise, particularly in Afghanistan.
