At least 233 people have been killed after a powerful earthquake hit Ecuador.
The magnitude 7.8 quake struck yesterday evening and was felt as far away as neighbouring Colombia.
Ecuador's President Rafael Correa Has declared a state of emergency and has called on his country to be "calm and united".
The Ecuadorian Government is sending almost 15,000 troops and police to the northwest of the country to assist in earthquake relief efforts there.
At least 77 people have been killed and almost 600 injured in the powerful quake.
Hundreds of medical staff are travelling to the affected region, and two field hospitals have been set up.
The country is in a state of emergency and hundreds of rescue workers are coming in from Venezuela, Colombia and Mexico.
The country's president, who was abroad when the quake hit, is now returning to Ecuador.
