Southern Turkey has been rocked by a 6.4 magnitude earthquake, weeks after a deadly quake devastated the region.

According to the country’s disaster and emergency agency, the tremor occurred at 20.04 local time (17.04 GMT).

And officials say people are trapped under rubble.

A 7.8-magnitude quake struck the same area on February 6, killing more than 44,000 people in Turkey and Syria.

Turkish authorities have reported over 6,000 aftershocks since that earthquake hit.

Several structures withstood the tremor on February 6.

But they have crumbled due to the latest quake.

And road cracks have widened, making it difficult for emergency personnel to get to certain areas.
