5.3 magnitude earthquake hits southern Turkey wounding at least 23 people and damaging buildings

A magnitude 5.3 earthquake shakes Turkey, six months after a catastrophic temblor that devastated the region, causing damage to buildings and wounding 23 people, according to Turkish officials

Turkey’s Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said in a social media post that the injuries sustained in Malatya and Adiyaman consisted of falls and people throwing themselves off buildings to avoid being crushed under a collapsed building.

Private broadcaster NTV reported that some damage could be seen in buildings as a result of Thursday’s earthquake.
