Scenes from the aftermath in Turkey

Grieving for lost loved ones in Turkey. Rescue workers continue to search for survivors in the rubble after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck southeast Turkey. Increasingly those recovered are dead, with the death toll now at 432. Survivors are left to scramble for the basic necessities. Villagers in the province of Van try to salvage what they can from their broken homes. They dig through the rubble searching for what they once had. Food is scare Some have lost everything SOUNDBITE: Quake survivor Sait Sidar, saying (Turkish): "There are no houses or animal barns left. They are all demolished. We have no tents either. The government did not provide us tents. We use blankets instead." Thousands left homeless prepare to face a third night in makeshift tent cities as temperature plummet. The Turkish Red Crescent says they are preparing food for some 10,000 people, three times a day. Hundreds stand in line waiting to pick up tents from the military. Aerial shots show the extent of damage. The U.N. disaster agency says almost 1,000 buildings collapsed in the quake. A Red Crescent spokesman says the agency is preparing to provide refuge for as many as 40,000 people. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters.
