At this stage there are no reports of Bulgarian citizens injured in the earthquake in Turkey, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
According to information from the expatriate community in the disaster area, the Bulgarian with dual citizenship living in the town of Iskenderun, who has been missing since yesterday, has not yet been found. "His relatives have gone there locally and the consular office is in touch with them. They are hopeful that the man may be alive.
There are several people who have been pulled from under the rubble of the same apartment building who are in hospital. Some of them have not been identified by name and the hope is that he is among those unidentified people who are in hospital," Foreign Minister Nikolai Milkov said at a briefing. /BGNES
