Earthquake Hits Eastern Turkey, Killing 22

Saturday 25 January 2020

BERLIN (DW News) — In Turkey, at least 22 people are dead and more than 900 injured after a powerful earthquake has hit a sparsely populated part of eastern Turkey.

The quake struck near the town of Sivrice, about 550 km east of the capital Ankara. It was followed by dozens of aftershocks, some of them almost as strong as the initial quake.

Rescue teams are now searching for survivors trapped in collapsed buildings.
