At least 326 people were killed in Syria and more than 1000 people injured following a major earthquake in neighbouring Turkey, state news agency (SANA) quoted a senior health official as saying on Monday.
"The number of casualties from the earthquake rose to 326 dead and 1,042 injured," Ahmed Damiriyya, an aide to the Syrian health minister, said.
The toll reported by state media is thought to include only those living in government-held areas.
