    Earlier this month, Turkey's Elazig province was hit by a 6.8-magnitude earthquake, which claimed the lives of 41 people and left more than 1,000 injured.

    A 4.0-magnitude quake hit Sivrice, a town in Turkey's eastern Elazig province, the Kandilli seismology centre in Istanbul said.

    The quake occurred at a depth of 1.5 kilometres at 18:36 local time. 

    No injuries or damage have so far been reported.  

    This comes just days after a deadly 6.8-magnitude quake killed 41 people and injured over 1,000 in the same province.
