Turkey has been hit by another earthquake today, killing one person, injuring 69 others and causing already damaged buildings to collapse - three weeks after a catastrophic tremor devastated the country and killed 48,000 people.
The magnitude 5.6 earthquake was centred in the town of Yesilyurt in Malatya province in southern Turkey, the country's disaster management agency said.
A father and daughter were rescued from beneath the rubble of a four-storey building and carried to an ambulance on stretchers. Yesilyurt's mayor, Mehmet Cinar, said the pair had entered the damaged building to collect belongings.
