There are fears that more than 50,000 people have died as a result of the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.
So far more than 28,000 people have been confirmed dead following the huge quakes a week ago.
But rescuers are still uncovering survivors from the huge debris in many towns and cities.
A seven-month-old baby and a teenage girl were taken from the rubble yesterday.
UN relief chief Martin Griffiths said he expected the death toll to at least double after he arrived in southern Turkey yesterday to assess the quake’s damage.
Tens of thousands of rescue workers are scouring flattened neighbourhoods despite freezing weather that has deepened the misery of millions now in desperate need of aid.
Security concerns led some aid operations to be suspended, and dozens of people have been arrested for looting or trying to defraud victims in the aftermath of the quake in Turkey, according to state media.
Families were racing against time to find their missing relatives’ bodies in southern Turkey.
“We hear (the authorities) will no longer keep the bodies waiting after a certain period of time, they say they will take them and bury them,” Tuba Yolcu said in Kahramanmaras.
Another family clutched each other in grief at a cotton field transformed into a cemetery, with a seemingly endless stream of bodies arriving for swift burial.
