A new 7.5-magnitude earthquake struck southeastern Turkey on Monday, just hours after a 7.8-magnitude quake shook the same region, said the United States Geological Survey USGS.

“The new earthquake occurred at 10:24 a.m., 4 km southeast of the Turkish town of Ekinozu,” the USGS said.

The provisional death toll from the first quake has risen to at least 912 and 5,385 injured, according to data released by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
