Japanese aid worker among dead in latest Turkey quake
11 others killed; residents protest lack of inspection
Japanese aid worker Atsushi Miyazaki came to Turkey in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake last month, tasked with assessing damage and distributing relief supplies to survivors. Then he, too, became a victim of Turkey’s treacherous fault lines yesterday, fatally injured when a hotel, weakened by the earlier tremor, collapsed in a second quake that killed at least 11 others. Dozens of angry residents protested at the rubble of the downtown hotel where 41-year-old Miyazaki and others died, arguing that authorities should have closed it.
