Magnitude 6.8 quake jolts eastern Turkey

A 6.5-magnitude earthquake Friday jolted eastern Turkish province of Elazig, killing six people, injuring a dozen others, according to the initial reports, said the country's interior minister.
Suleyman Soylu said a total of four individuals lost their lives due to the quake while about a dozen people were injured.
The country's Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD) first announced the quake with a magnitude of 6.8, but Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute in Istanbul revised the figure to 6.5 shortly after.
