Van, Turkey emergency officials said Saturday that 38 people have died and 26 have been rescued as a result of Wednesday's 5.6 magnitude earthquake in eastern Turkey.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited the earthquake-ravaged region of Van on Saturday as the death toll rises from the latest round of deadly tremors. Among the victims were two Turkish journalists from the DHA news agency, Sebahattin Yilmaz and Cem Emir.

Both reporters had been covering the aftermath of the much deadlier 7.2 magnitude earthquake that tore through Van last month, leaving at least 604 people dead.

They were buried in the rubble of the five-story Bayram Hotel, which collapsed on Wednesday.
