Southeast Turkey and Northern Syria was devastated by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake on Monday, followed by a second magnitude 7.5 quake nine hours after the main jolt. More than 8,000 people have been killed in the wake of the earthquake, although the toll is likely to climb further as freezing weather and multiple aftershocks are hampering the rescue efforts, despite international assistance.
Thousands of people across Turkey and Syria were killed in Monday's 7.8-magnitude earthquake and the various aftershocks that followed. Tens of thousands more were left injured and without shelter in the freezing winter weather. More than 8,000 people have so far been pulled from the debris in Turkey, but it's thought thousands more are still missing. Around 4.1 million people - most of them women and children - are dependant on humanitarian aid to survive.
