Six killed as fresh earthquake hits Turkey


A magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck the Turkey-Syria border region, killing at least six people, two weeks after the area was devastated by quakes that killed more than 47,000 people in both countries.

On Tuesday, AFAD chief Yunus Sezer raised the death toll in Turkey from three to six, and said that 294 people were wounded.

Monday’s tremors were felt in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and Egypt, according to Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency.

Syria’s state news agency, SANA, reported six people were injured in Aleppo from falling debris, while the mayor of Hatay said several buildings had collapsed, trapping people inside.
