Rescue workers look for survivors after strong earthquake hits parts of Turkey and Greece

Izmir, Turkey after an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.6 on the Richter scale. The earthquake shook the Aegean coast on Friday, Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD) said. The strong earthquake was felt in both Greece and Turkey. Two people died on the Greek island of Samos, officials there said. The tremor could be felt as far away as in Istanbul and on Greek islands and high tidal waves were seen in both countries.

Whatever our differences, these are times when our people need to stand together
