UN’s aid chief, Martin Griffiths, said the earthquake worst event in 100 years.
UN’s aid chief, Martin Griffiths, said the earthquakes that shook Syria and Turkey earlier this week were the worst event in 100 years to have impacted the region. Speaking to reporters in Kahramanmaraş, near the earthquake’s epicentre, he also put out an appeal for further aid for survivors. Aid and rescue efforts have entered their sixth day, as the death toll from the earthquake passes 20,000 people. Survivors are still being pulled out from collapsed buildings by rescuers, as government, international and aid agencies work to re-settle those affected.
