President Erdogan Visits Earthquake Ravaged Province of Hatay, Turkey

President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, visited the province of Hatay on March 15, one of the most affected areas by the earthquakes that struck Turkey and Syria on February 6. Hundreds of thousands of people across 10 provinces are still living in temporary accommodation according to the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority.

President Erdogan and his government’s response to the natural disaster is now under investigation. Experts cite the lack of enforcement of earthquake-proof building regulations as one of the main reasons for the high number of fatalities in Hatay and surrounding areas.
