    Three young children and their mother were rescued alive from the rubble of a collapsed building in western Turkey on Saturday, 23 hours after a powerful earthquake in the Aegean Sea killed at least 30 people and injured more than 800 others. The Friday afternoon quake that struck Turkey’s Aegean coast and north of the Greek island of Samos registered a magnitude that Turkish authorities put at 6.6 while other seismology institutes said it measured 6.9. It toppled buildings in Izmir, Turkey’s third-largest city, and triggered a small tsunami in the Seferihisar district and on the Samos. Hundreds of aftershocks followed. At least 28 people were killed in Izmir, Health Minister Fahrettin Koca tweeted. IHH, an Islamic aid organization, shared video of their overnight rescue efforts on Saturday from the hardest hit areas of Bayrakli and Seferihisar.
