The European Union and the United Nations are coordinating the international efforts to assist Albania after the 6.4-magnitude earthquake that killed 51 people and left thousands homeless.

Luigi Soreca, EU ambassador to Albania, said Monday that Brussels mobilized the Civil Protection Mechanism on the day of earthquake, Nov. 26, with many search-and-rescue teams arriving in the country.

Albania’s defense minister, Olta Xhacka, said 780 rescuers from EU and other countries helped “not to have more lives lost.”
