Deadly quake hits Turkey and Syria

By Jordi Bou

February 6, 2023 - A magnitude 7.8 earthquake in central Turkey and northwest Syria has left hundreds dead and thousands injured.

The quake, which hit in the early darkness of a winter morning, was also felt in Cyprus and Lebanon.

It was Turkey's most severe quake since 1999, when one of similar magnitude devastated Izmit and the heavily populated eastern Marmara Sea region near Istanbul, killing more than 17,000.
