At Least 38 Killed in Turkey Earthquake,  Officials Say

ANKARA - Rescue crews in Turkey worked through Sunday to pull survivors from collapsed buildings in the country’s east where a magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck Friday, claiming at least 38 lives.
The quake injured more than 1,600 people but at least 45 survivors have been pulled alive from the rubble so far, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters in Istanbul Sunday.
More than 780 aftershocks rocked the eastern region as over 3,500 rescue experts scrambled through wrecked buildings to reach survivors.
Erdogan visited the disaster zone Saturday to inspect the rescue operation, meet with injured people in the hospital and attend the funeral of a mother and son.
Across Turkey, there was an outpouring of support for the victims. Some soccer clubs announced they would donate the receipts of their weekend matches. (Fox News)
