Almost 16,000 dead in Turkey and Syria

Nearly 16,000 people are now known to have died in the earthquake in Turkey and northern Syria.

The Turkish government says more than 30,000 have also been injured.

Irish Emergency Alliance, comprising six key humanitarian organisations, has an appeal to support the thousands devastated by the disaster.

People are still being rescued alive but freezing overnight temperatures are making things even more difficult.

The first convoy of assistance for Syrians is reportedly en route for the border with Turkey.
