In Turkey, survivors mark 1 year since catastrophic earthquakes

The World
People gather in a moment of silence as they mark the one-year anniversary of the country's catastrophic earthquake, in the city of Antakya, southern Turkey, Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2024. 

It has been one year since Turkey and Syria were hit with twin catastrophic earthquakes. An early morning commemoration for earthquake victims turned into a protest in the hardest-hit Turkish province of Hatay, as survivors look back on a year of grief. And, a lot of eyes are on Washington this week as Congress debates immigration reform built into a military aid package to Ukraine and Israel. Also, militia groups in the Middle East are increasingly using drones to hit targets that were once out of reach. They are relying on these cheap, accessible drones instead of weapons. Plus, all about megalodon, the ocean's largest predator.
