Rescue workers in the worst-hit Turkish city of Izmir on Monday withdrew two girls alive from the rubble of their apartment building, three days after the earthquake hit. Search teams also rescued a 70-year-old man from a collapsed building on Sunday night. Turkish authorities reported at least 83 people died and 962 others sustained injuries in Izmir by Monday. The Friday earthquake was centered in the Aegean Sea northeast of Samos, according to the Kandilli Observatory in Turkey. The country’s emergency management agency said it measured the quake at magnitude 6.6.
