Scores of people were killed and hundreds injured in rebel-held areas of Syria after an earthquake rattled neighbouring Turkey on Monday, rescue workers said.

According to Turkey Vice President Fuat Oktay, at least 284 people died in Turkey from a 7.8-magnitude earthquake that struck the country’s South-East on Monday.

Oktay said more than 2,300 people were injured in one of Turkey’s biggest quakes in at least a century, adding that search and rescue work continued in several major cities.
