At least 217 people have been killed in eastern Turkey and up to 740 more injured after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the region on Monday. There are fears the death toll could reach up to 1,000.

Interior Minister Idris Naim Sahin said 117 were killed in the district of Ercis, another 100 died in Van while some 740 people were injured. Hundreds of people are still missing.

An earlier toll had given 70 dead including 50 in Ercis, a district of around 100,000 people in the same region as Van.

Hundreds of rescue teams worked throughout the night searching for survivors among dozens of pancaked buildings, as aid groups scrambled to set up tents, field hospitals and kitchens to assist thousands left homeless.
