Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that the death toll in the country from Monday’s earthquakes has reached 8,574, even as rescue workers are continuing to search for victims buried under mountains of rubble.

Erdogan was speaking from Kahramanmaras during a visit to some of the areas worst hit by the temblors.

At least 2,530 people have died in Syria, according to a tally of numbers made public by the government in Damascus and rescue groups in rebel-held regions, taking the total death toll from the earthquakes in excess of 11,000.
