Turkey earthquake victims pulled from hotel rubble

Rescue teams are searching for dozens of people trapped in rubble after a 5.6-magnitude earthquake struck eastern Turkey, killing at least nine people.

Twenty-five buildings have collapsed, including a six-storey hotel in the city of Van, where journalists and aid workers were staying, officials said.

Emergency workers said 23 people had been rescued alive but that up to 100 more remained unaccounted for.
