The death toll from the Turkey-Syria earthquakes is nearing 42,000.
Turkish authorities say 36,187 people have been killed in the country. The Syrian government and the United Nations say more than 5,800 people have died in Syria.
Yet rescuers are also continuing to find survivors: A mother and her two children were rescued in Turkey’s Antakya, 228 hours after the first earthquake.
The World Health Organization says the “zone of greatest concern” is northwestern Syria, where anger is growing over the slow delivery of humanitarian assistance.
The UN is appealing for $397m in aid to help 5 million Syrian survivors with shelter, healthcare and food.
