ANKARA, Turkey -- A Turkish news agency says an earthquake with a preliminary 5.7 magnitude has caused some buildings to collapse in the eastern part of the country.

The Dogan news agency says Wednesday the quake hit the eastern province of Van, more than two weeks after a 7.2 earthquake there killed around 600 people.

Dogan says Wednesday’s quake brought down buildings that were damaged in the earlier temblor. It was not known if anyone was trapped under debris.
