"As dawn broke over a ruined city, a horrific scene of destruction greeted the survivors. Homes and factories were flattened and many buildings were consumed by flames so intense, the city's sandstone brickwork glowed red.
The air stank of burning flesh, and bodies, some mutilated beyond recognition, lay in the streets.
"I saw a dog running down the street with a child's arm in its mouth. There were lines of bodies stretched out on blankets."
