A 7.8-magnitude earthquake in southeastern Turkiye and northwestern Syria has affected millions of people. There has been extensive loss of life, property and infrastructure.
More than 5,600 buildings have been flattened across several cities, including many multi-story apartment blocks that were filled with sleeping residents when the first quake struck.
