Caption: Earthquake damage. A group of US politicians visiting a damaged bread-baking factory in Armenia after the 1988 Spitak earthquake. The earthquake was a magnitude 6.9 event at a depth of just 10km that hit at 11.41 local time on 7 December 1988. It caused devastation in the town of Spitak with over 25,000 deaths. Many scientists blame the poor construction of buildings made during the 'stagnation' era of Premier Brezhnev. Photographed in January 1989.
