Turkey-Syria quake death toll crosses 46,000

More than 46,000 people have been killed in the earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria and the toll is expected to soar, with some 264,000 apartments in Turkey destroyed and many still missing as rescuers listen for signs of life under the rubble, reports the Reuters.
As Turkey tries to manage its worst modern disaster, concerns were growing over the victims of the tragedy in Syria. The death toll in Turkey stands at 40,642 from the quake while neighbouring Syria has reported more than 5,800 deaths, a toll that has not changed for days.
