A year on, Turkiye earthquake survivor counts losses of life and limb

BURSA, Turkiye: Abdulalim Muaini lies in bed looking at pictures of his children and wife who died next to him in the earthquake one year ago, contemplating how it shattered the new life they had built in southern Turkiye after having fled war in Syria.
The deadliest disaster in Turkiye’s modern history, the magnitude 7.8 tremor levelled towns and city swathes in the country’s southeast and neighboring Syria. It killed more than 50,000 people in Turkiye, some 5,900 in Syria, and left millions homeless.
