A picture taken with drone shows the Icmeler region burnt during a wildfire near Marmaris, Turkey, on Saturday. At least 6 people were reported killed after sweltering heat and strong winds fanned 101 wildfires in the country’s Aegean and Mediterranean coastal regions in the past four days, forcing thousands to evacuate.
