BREAKING: Turkey, Syria earthquakes: Death toll exceeds 36,000

CNN: More than 36,000 people have been killed and tens of thousands injured after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Turkey and Syria last Monday, officials said.

Turkish authorities have arrested a number of property developers blamed for building collapses as public anger over the quake response grows.

A woman was recued after 175 hours under the rubble, among the latest in a series of harrowing stories of success as workers in Turkey continue to search for survivors.

Rescue operations are over in rebel-held areas of northwest Syria, the White Helmets volunteer organization said.

Relief efforts there have been complicated by a long-running civil war.
