On Wednesday night, a magnitude-5.7 earthquake hit eastern Turkey.

At least 7 people were killed and more people are still trapped under the fallen buildings.

25 buildings collapsed, including 2 hotels in the city of Van.

24 people had been rescued alive so far from the rubble of the buildings. 

Some foreign rescue workers and journalists who stayed at the Bayram Hotel that was collapsed in this earthquake are still missing.
