Quake survivors and victims fill Syrian hospital

STORY: The quake, which hit in the early darkness of a winter morning, was also felt in Cyprus and Lebanon.

In Syria, already devastated by more than 11 years of civil war, a government health official said more than 237 people had been killed and about 600 injured, most in the provinces of Hama, Aleppo and Latakia, where numerous buildings tumbled down.

In the Syrian rebel-held northwest, a rescue service said dozens had been killed. Rescue workers there reported extensive damage.
