Turkey death toll passes 11,000



More than 11,000 people in southern Turkey and northern Syria are now known to have been killed in Monday’s earthquakes.

Families in some badly-hit areas have said the slow speed of rescue efforts means they have had no help digging to find relatives.

Erdogan acknowledged there’d been difficulties with the initial response but blamed delays on damaged roads and airports.

In Syria, the White Helmet group who are leading efforts to rescue people in rebel-held areas, say time is running out to save people.
