A 6.8-magnitude earthquake has rocked a sparsely-populated part of eastern Turkey, killing at least 18 people, injuring more than 500 and leaving some 30 trapped in the wreckage of toppled buildings, Turkish officials say.

Rescue teams from neighbouring areas were dispatched to the affected areas, working in the dark with floodlights in the freezing cold, and Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said troops were on standby to help.TV footage showed rescuers pull out one injured person from the rubble of a collapsed building in the district of Gezin, in eastern Elazig.

Around 30 were believed to be trapped inside collapsed structures in Elazig, Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said. Health minister Fahrettin Koca, who travelled to the afflicted area together with Mr Soylu, said 13 people were killed in Elazig, including two people who suffered heart attacks, and five others died in Malatya.
