Death toll from Syria-Turkey quake rises to over 11,200

By Jordi Bou

February 8, 2023 - An international aid effort is underway in Turkey and Syria following the devastating earthquake that has left over 11,200 people dead, with numbers likely to rise further.

The tally was expected to rise as hundreds of collapsed buildings in many cities have become tombs for people who had been asleep in their homes when the quake hit in the early morning.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan visited southern Turkey to see first-hand the destruction wrought by a massive earthquake as anger grew among local people over what they said was a slow government response to the rescue and relief effort.
