Six people have died in the earthquake that hit the Syrian-Turkish border on Monday, just two weeks after more than 47,000 people died and hundreds of thousands of homes were destroyed.
The latest quake measuring 6.4 on the Richter scale struck near the city of Antakya in southern Turkey and was also felt in Syria, Egypt and Lebanon, Reuters reported on Tuesday. The European Mediterranean Seismic Center (EMSC) said the quake struck at a depth of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles).
After the recent earthquake, rescuers were seen climbing stairs to reach a building where several people were stranded.
Reuters reported that the quake was due to people inside the damaged building packing before it was demolished.
Turkish Health Minister Fahretin Koca said 294 people were injured in the earthquake on Monday evening, 18 of whom are in serious condition and were taken to hospitals in Adana and Dortola.
