Freezing Turkish quake survivors loot aid trucks
Survivors of Turkey's devastating earthquake have reportedly begun looting aid supplies as authorities struggle to provide shelter and food for the tens of thousands left homeless. 17 aid trucks belonging to the Turkish Red Crescent have been looted in quake-hit eastern Turkey. As night-time temperatures drop to below zero and snow was forecast to fall overnight, authorities are in a race against time to provide some form of shelter for the thousands of people who face another night out in the open. People are desperate to look after themselves and their loved ones and will do whatever it takes to survive.
