A group of African university students arrived Monday in Turkey's eastern province of Van to help the victims of a recent massive earthquake, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported.
The African students, studying in Turkish universities, arrived in Ercis town of Van, bringing humanitarian aid to the quake victims, according to the report.
The students were quoted as saying that they were representing nearly 2,000 African students who were studying in Turkey's largest city of Istanbul. The students visited quake victims staying in tents, handing out meat and other aid.
Van was hit by an earthquake measuring 7.2 on the Richter scale on Oct. 23, claiming the lives of 601 people, while 4,152 others were wounded and 188 were pulled alive out of the debris.
