Taking to Twitter, PM Imran Khan said, “We stand with the government and people of Turkey and share in their sorrow at the tragic loss of life in the wildfires tragedy”.
According to a Reuters report, the forest fires on Turkey’s southern coast have claimed at least four lives so far.
More than 70 wildfires have erupted in regions around Turkey’s Aegean and Mediterranean coastlines, as well as interior areas, according to President Tayyip Erdogan. He said that 14 of the 70 were still burning.
Firefighters battled blazes for a third day on Friday, according to Reuters, after dozens of towns and hotels were evacuated, and television images showed residents fleeing across fields as fires closed in on their homes.
