Turkey quake: Boy, 13, rescued alive from rubble

At least 217 people are now known to have died in Sunday's earthquake in eastern Turkey.

Rescue teams are sifting through rubble, searching for the hundreds of people who are still unaccounted for.

More than 1,000 people were injured in the quake, which struck the province of Van, near the border with Iran.

The rescue work has been hampered by a series of aftershocks, and many survivors have spent the night outside.

Phil Bodmer reports.
