BREAKING: Another earthquake hits Turkey, Syria

Reports indicate that another earthquake has hit the border of Turkey and Syria, exactly two weeks after the devastating earthquake that occurred on Monday, February 6, 2023. According to AJ+, the earthquake had a magnitude of 6.3, resulting in damages to structures, but there have been no immediate reports of casualties. Since the February 6 earthquake that killed over 46,000 people, Turkey has reported over 6,000 aftershocks.

Meanwhile, the remains of Christian Atsu, a former Black Stars winger, who was trapped in the February 6 earthquake, have been returned to Ghana. After a 12-day search, his remains were found under the rubble on February 18 and transported to Ghana, arriving on Sunday from Istanbul. CNN reports that the earthquake, which is the second-largest in the last century anywhere in the world, has already claimed more than 40,000 lives in Turkey and neighbouring Syria.
