NATO flags at half-mast due to disaster in Turkey

Flags at NATO headquarters have been flown at half-mast in solidarity with Turkey due to the country's devastating earthquake.

The flags of the 30 allied countries in front of the NATO headquarters in Brussels will be at half-mast until tomorrow evening, as a sign of solidarity with Turkey and the Turkish people.

Turkey's permanent mission to NATO said it thanks the allies for the aid they started sending to Turkey on Monday.

More than 1.400 emergency response personnel from more than two dozen NATO allies and partners – including invitees Finland and Sweden – are deploying to Turkey, helping to respond to the devastating earthquakes that struck the country on 6 February. More than 53.000 Turkish first responders are currently on the ground, the Alliance said.
