Powerful earthquake strikes Turkey

[UPDATE] A 2-week-old baby girl was pulled alive from the rubble of an apartment building on Tuesday almost 48 hours after a massive earthquake destroyed hundreds of buildings in eastern Turkey.

Dozens of other people were also believed to be trapped in collapsed buildings and have been awaiting rescue since the 7.2 magnitude quake hit on Sunday. The death toll now stands at 432 and more than 1,350 have been injured, Turkish officials say.

The death toll from the earthquake that struck southeastern Turkey continues to rise, nearing 300 Monday morning, with more than 1,000 injured, according to news agency accounts from the stricken region.

Casualty numbers were expected to rise as rescue workers searched for bodies in dozens of buildings that collapsed after the powerful temblor struck Sunday afternoon in the province of Van, bordering Iran. The quake — variously described as magnitude 7.3 or 7.2 — also shook parts of neighboring Iran and Armenia.
