Turkish officials say dozens were slightly injured after an earthquake in southeastern Turkey. The earthquake struck Samsat village in the province of Adiyaman early Tuesday at 3.34 a.m. local time. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 5.2 and was 10 kilometers deep.
Turkey’s health minister said of those injured, 35 were still receiving treatment. The regional governor said the injuries were caused as people fled their homes in panic.
The quake was felt in neighboring provinces. Turkey’s Kandilli Earthquake Monitoring Center recorded at least 13 aftershocks.
