A series of earthquakes shook southeastern Turkey and northern Syria early this morning, claiming the lives of nearly 1,500 people, according to an initial assessment. In Turkey alone, 912 people have been killed and more than 5,000 injured, according to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who estimates the number of collapsed buildings at 2,818. Thousands of victims are reportedly trapped under the rubble, which rescue teams are trying to reach.
