ADANA, Turkey — An earthquake jolted this southern city near the Mediterranean coast Saturday, killing at least 108 people and injuring about 1,000, including several Americans at a military base, officials said.
Among those killed in the magnitude 6.2 quake were 37 people who lived in the slums of Adana, a city of 1 million, Deputy Gov. Ardahan Totuk said. At least 30 people were reported dead in the nearby town of Ceyhan, site of an oil terminal, the Anatolian news agency said.
Totuk said 108 people had been reported killed. The number of injured had reached about 1,000, Gov. Oguz Koksal said.
It was unclear whether the oil pipeline linking Iraq to Turkey had suffered any damage.
According to an announcement from the headquarters of the U.S. Air Force in Europe, 25 people at Incirlik Air Base suffered minor injuries. The announcement did not say how many were U.S. nationals.
But a U.S. Embassy representative, speaking on condition of anonymity, said a dozen U.S. citizens were slightly injured by falling objects.
