1. TURKEY - A grim reality has forced a change of tactis in Turkey. The death toll has risen to 12,00, but it is expected to rise to 40,000 in the next few days as missing people are declared dead.

3. TORNADO - Residents of a Christchurch suburb are cleaning up after a mini-tornado damaged roofs, power poles and trees.
