Turkey quake raises housing quality questions

Turkish authorities face scrutiny over failings of building regulations after deadly quake.

Questions are being raised about the quality of buildings which collapsed following this week’s devastating earthquake in Van province in eastern Turkey.

With some structures still crumbling and no official word on when rebuilding can begin, Turkish authorities are likely to be quizzed over why they have failed to tighten up construction regulations in a region of the world so prone to earthquakes.
