Turkey quake: Death toll rises to nearly 370

The Turkish government has pledged more aid to thousands of people affected by Sunday's deadly earthquake in the east.

Officials said 12,000 more tents would be delivered to the cities of Ercis and Van and also to nearby villages.

Ankara has been accused of failing to help some of the most needy, who spent the second night in freezing conditions without heating and tents.

At least 366 people are now known to have died and some 1,300 injured after the 7.2-magnitude earthquake.
