Description

There have been more aftershocks in northern Chile following a magnitude 8.2 earthquake on Wednesday. Residents in the hardest hit city of Iquique have been sleeping outdoors, fearing their homes might collapse, while merchants from neighbouring Bolivia are stranded due to blocked roads. Businessmen and labourers are also struggling to get back on their feet following damage to both public infrastructure and private properties. Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman reports from Iquique.
