    Background: REFUGEES FROM THE RECENT EARTHQUAKE IN WESTERN TURKEY HAVE BEEN MOVED INTO TENTS AS PART OF RELIEF OPERATIONS. MEANWHILE, THE SEARCH FOR BODIES CONTINUES IN THE DISASTER AREA.

    MORE BODIES WERE FOUND TODAY, (FRIDAY, APRIL 3) BRINGING THE OFFICIAL DEATH TOLL IN THE EARTHQUAKE TO 1087.

    INTERNATIONAL RELIEF AGENCIES HAVE BEEN WORKING TO CLEAR THE AREAS RAZED BY LAST SATURDAY'S EARTHQUAKES, TO RE-ESTABLISH WATER SUPPLIES, AND TO REMOVE ORPHAN SURVIVORS TO AREAS WHERE THEY CAN ATTEND SCHOOL.

    GERMAN ENGINEERS SAID THEY EXPECTED TO CLEAR ALL OF GEDIZ--ONE OF THE TOWNS HIT BY THE QUAKE--WITHIN SIX WEEKS. GERMAN AND BRITISH RELIEF TEAMS HAVE JOINED TO SET UP WATER PURIFICATION UNITS IN THE TOWN OF EMET AND NEARBY VILLAGES.

    THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE SAID THAT EVERYONE IN THE AFFECTED AREA HAD BEEN INOCULATED AGAINST DIPHTHERIA, CHOLERA, TYPHUS AND POLIO. A SPOKESMAN CLAIMED THERE WAS "SUFFICIENT RELIEF MATERIAL" AVAILABLE BUT ADDED THAT LARGER AND BETTER TENTS WERE STILL NEEDED.

    THE SWISS RED CROSS HAS OFFERED TO TAKE 60 ORPHAN SURVIVORS OF THE EARTHQUAKE TO CONTINUE THEIR SCHOOLING WHILE ACCOMMODATION IS BEING BUILT FOR THEM. THREE OF THE CHILDREN'S TEACHERS WILL ACCOMPANY THEM SO THAT THEIR EDUCATION CAN CONTINUE AS NORMALLY AS POSSIBLE.

    IT WAS ANNOUNCED THAT PRESIDENT CEVDET SUNAY AND HOUSING MINISTER HAYRETTIN NAKIPOGLU WILL VISIT THE AREA THIS WEEKEND.
