Earthquake death toll rises

Syrian civil defense members carry an injured woman after rescuing her from the rubble of a collapsed building after an earthquake in the government-controlled Aleppo on Monday. A 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit Turkey and Syria early on February 6, killing more than a thousand people as they slept, levelling buildings and sending tremors that were felt as far away as the island of Cyprus, Egypt and Iraq.
