Dozens injured in quake

Turkish officials say dozens were injured after an earthquake in southeastern Turkey.

The earthquake struck Samsat village in the province of Adiyaman early Tuesday at 3.34 a.m. local time. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 5.2 at 10 kilometres deep.

Turkey's health minister said of those injured, 35 were still receiving treatment, according to official Anadolu news agency. The regional governor said the injuries were caused as people fled their homes in panic.

Anadolu quoted victim Zeynep Berk whose house collapsed on her and four others. Neighbors rescued the family and attempts to recover their 150 animals continue.

The quake was felt in neighbouring provinces. Turkey's Kandilli Earthquake Monitoring Center recorded at least 13 aftershocks.
