Another 6.4-Magnitude Earthquake Hits Turkey

A 6.4 magnitude earthquake has struck southern Turkey, weeks after a deadly quake devastated the region.

The quake hit the town of Defne at 8:04 pm (1704 GMT) and was strongly felt in Antakya and Adana, 200 kilometres (300 miles) to the north, according to AFP.

An AFP journalist reported scenes of panic, adding that the new tremors raised clouds of dust in the devastated town.

The walls of badly damaged buildings crumbled while several people, apparently injured, called for help.

According to Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency, more than 6,000 aftershocks have been recorded since the 7.8-magnitude quake hit Turkey and Syria.
