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.

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