At least 5,000 people were killed after a 7.8 magnitude, pre-dawn earthquake rocked the border of Turkey and Syria early Monday, toppling thousands of buildings and leaving hundreds of people trapped under rubble. The quake, which was centered on Turkey's southeastern province of Kahramanmaras, could be felt as far away as Cairo and Beirut as powerful aftershocks continued to rattle the region.
