5.2 magnitude earthquake hits Van
A magnitude-5.2 quake early Tuesday shook eastern Turkey - already devastated by two powerful tremors, the Kandilli observatory said, Today's Zaman reported.
It was not clear whether the latest quake in Van province caused any damage or injuries. Its epicenter was in the village of Mollakasım, Turkey's Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute said in a statement.
A magnitude-7.2 quake last month and a magnitude-5.6 quake last week flattened some 2,000 buildings, killed 644 people and left thousands homeless in the eastern Turkish province of Van, where an unusually cold November is forcing survivors to endure even more suffering.
