Death toll from Aegean Sea quake rises to 60

The powerful earthquake that hit the Aegean Sea on Friday has killed 58 people in Turkey, the country's disaster agency said Sunday. Two people also died on the Greek island of Samos, Greek authorities said, CNN reports.

Rescue workers continue to search for survivors under the wreckage of eight buildings in the city of Izmir, in western Turkey.

Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said Sunday there was "no clear number on how many people are still under rubble. Hard to give a number. There is an estimation, but I cannot share."
