Turkey earthquake: Two more survivors found

Rescue teams have found two more people alive in rubble, after Sunday's earthquake in Turkey.

Gozde Bahar, a 27-year-old English-language teacher, and University student Eyup Erdem, 18, were both rescued in Ercis on Wednesday. The death toll from the disaster stands at 461 but aid agencies have warned of "hundreds, possibly thousands" of people trapped under rubble.

Officials have agreed to accept offers of aid from foreign countries, after initially declining help. With more than 2,000 buildings destroyed, they say there is an urgent need for accommodation.

Jonathan Head reports from Ercis.
