Turkey’s Iskenderun port on fire after quake

Dozens of cargo containers were on fire for the second day running on Tuesday in Turkey’s quake-hit southern port city of Iskenderun, local TV images show.

The blaze at the Iskenderun international port has raged since 5 p.m. (1400 GMT) yesterday, when one of its containers toppled over from aftershocks following the deadly 7.8-magnitude quake, Hurriyet daily reports.

Images broadcast by the NTV news channel show thick, black plumes of smoke billowing from the containers.

Another video shows unsuccessful attempts to put the fire out on Monday night.
