Emergency crews in Bam, Iran, are now focusing their efforts on food, clean water and sanitation following the earthquake that leveled the ancient city and killed more than 30,000 people. Iranian authorities are pledging to rebuild Bam's citadel, a brick structure that had stood for 2,000 years. Hear NPR's Scott Simon and NPR's Lawrence Sheets.
