Turkey to end search for survivors
Earthquake toll raised to 582
Turkish rescue teams were digging through the remains of four collapsed buildings yesterday in what the deputy prime minister said would be the final day of the search for survivors of a devastating earthquake six days ago. The death toll in the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that also rattled parts of Iran and Armenia, increased to 582, of whom 455 were in the eastern city of Ercis. Close to 4,000 were injured and some 230 were brought out of the ruins alive, authorities said.
