After Losing Over 40,000 Lives, Turkey Suffers Another Earthquake

A 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck the southern part of Turkey on Monday.


The country’s disaster and emergency agency, AFAD, confirmed this, adding that the tremor affected buildings in Antakya and trapped a yet-to-be-disclosed number of people.

The development is occurring less than one month after a 7.8-magnitude struck the region and hit the country’s borders with Syria.

Authorities say that the earthquake killed over 44,000 people in Turkey and Syria.

BBC reports that the latest tremor was felt in Syria, Egypt, and Lebanon.
