‘People are sending me voice notes from under the rubble’

A Turkish journalist, based in Istanbul, has just been speaking to our television colleagues, explaining the situation.

“People are still under the [collapsed] buildings, they need help,” Ibrahim Haskologlu says.

Originally from Malatya – an area heavily affected by yesterday’s earthquakes – he says he’s planning to head home as soon as he can to help where it’s needed.

He tells the BBC News Channel that people are sending him and other journalists videos, voice notes and their live locations from under the rubble.

They’re telling us where they are and “we can’t do anything,” Haskologlu says, adding Turkey needs all the international help it can get.
