Two mosques have reportedly been destroyed after 5.7 magnitude earthquake shook buildings in Istanbul on Thursday.
Naija News understands that the disaster, causing the residents to rush out of buildings to streets also got at least eight injured.
“The quake really shook at the start and then it continued, maybe it felt like that because the building is so tall,” a witness identified as Ozge Etcan, 27, who is also an employee at a financial firm in Istanbul’s Levent district, where crowds gathered outside in the aftermath of the tremor said.
