The Turkish Disaster and Emergency Authority said today, Wednesday, that the death toll in Turkey as a result of the devastating earthquake that struck the country last month has risen to 45,089, bringing the total number of earthquake deaths in Turkyie and Syria to about 51,000, according to Al Arabiya Space channel.

The earthquake and subsequent strong aftershocks also injured more than 108,000 people in Turkyie, with millions sheltering in tents or seeking to move to other cities.

The Turkish authorities have pledged to rebuild the homes within a year, but it will take several months before thousands can leave tents or live in cargo containers and the daily lines for food and move into permanent housing.
