1 dead, 69 injured in 5.6 magnitude earthquake in Turkey

Antakya: Three weeks after the enormous quakes that took more than 44,000 lives, a 5.6 magnitude earthquake struck eastern Turkey, killing one person and injuring 69 others, according to the nation's disaster agency.

According to Xinhua news agency, the epicentre of the earthquake that occurred on Monday was situated in the Malatya province's Yesilyurt district. This area had previously experienced powerful tremors on February 6.

A total of 25 buildings that had previously been damaged by the tremors earlier this month collapsed on Monday, the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) said.

On February 6, a magnitude 7.7 earthquake struck Turkey's southern province of Kahramanmaras at 4:17 a.m. local time (0117 GMT), followed by a magnitude 6.4 quake a few minutes later in the country's southern province of Gaziantep and a magnitude 7.6 earthquake at 1:24 p.m. local time (1024 GMT) in the Kahramanmaras Province.

Another two earthquakes jolted Hatay province in southern Turkey on February 20, killing six people.
