Turkey-Syria Earthquake: Fresh aftershocks leave three people dead

Ankara: A magnitude 6.3 earthquake hit Turkey on Monday which left three people dead and injured 294 others, media reports said.

The fresh earthquake occurred just two weeks after a massive quake had rocked Syria and Turkey.

The quake struck Turkey’s southern Hatay province, near the Syrian border, Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Agency (AFAD) said Monday as quoted by CNN.

Several buildings have collapsed in the cities of Al-Bab and Harim in northern Syria as a result of new earthquakes that hit the border region of Syria and Turkey earlier on Monday, the Al Arabiya broadcaster reports, citing sources.

Turkey's disaster management authority AFAD reported two earthquakes in Turkey's Hatay Province on Monday, three minutes apart, with magnitudes of 6.4 and 5.8.

Hatay Province Governor Lutfu Savas said several people were under the rubble of houses that had collapsed.
