  • Description

    The death tool from Saturday's massive earthquake in the Bingol District of eastern Turkey rose to 995 on Tuesday, as the western area of Turkey was shaken by new tremors near Gediz -- the town destroyed by an earthquake last year, with a loss of 1,000 lives. There were no immediate reports of deaths or widespread damage from the new tremors.

    Rescue work in Bingol continued, as more bodies were pulled from the wreckage. The Governor of Bingol Province expressed fears that the death toll could rise well beyond the 1,000 mark. Turkish Air Force helicopters have begun to distribute food to otherwise inaccessible villages. The Governor said that contact had been restored with all but 10 of the 300 villages in the Province.
