Angry survivors looted supplies in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK), more than two days after a massive earthquake devastated the city.

Desperate residents ransacked military trucks, which had just arrived in the city and took desperately needed relief goods, including food, tents, blankets and medicines, an AFP photographer at the scene said.

Others broke into a petrol station to get fuel to burn wood for cooking and warmth, the photographer said. "There is no food, where is the help, where should we go," shouted people who have had to fend for themselves for more than 48 hours after the giant 7.6-magnitude quake struck.

Looks like the anarchy is starting similiar to the what happened in the aftermath of Katrina. A sad reality in yet another epic disaster of this new millenium.
