At least 6 people have been reported dead and more than 760 injured after two new earthquakes measuring 6.4 and 5.8 on the Richter scale hit the Turkish province of Hatay, one of the most affected by the Feb. 6 tremors where 41,020 victims lost their lives. Numerous aftershocks were also recorded Monday.
With around 33,000 people so far reported dead in both countries affected by last week's series of earthquakes and aftershocks, a United Nations expert predicted that the final number of victims will be twice as many or even more.
The country is known as Turkey has conveyed to the United Nations its decision to change its name to Türkiye. In other words, the idea is that the local-language version of the country's name is used worldwide, instead of translations.
