Turkiye commemorates its worst disaster of modern times

ISTANBUL: Turkiye on Tuesday holds pre-dawn vigils for the loss of more than 50,000 people — and parts of entire cities — in the earthquake-prone country’s deadliest disaster of modern times.
Grieving Turks are still coming to terms with how a 7.8-magnitude tremor could upturn the lives of millions of people in a matter of seconds while they were still asleep.
An updated toll released Friday showed that 53,537 people had died across 11 southeastern provinces officially designated as the disaster zone.
