Turkey's Kandilli observatory says a magnitude-5.0 quake has shaken eastern Turkey a region already devastated by two powerful tremors.

It says the quake hit early Wednesday and its epicenter was in the village of Kurubas near the city of Van.

Authorities say the latest quake did not cause any serious damage but terrified residents rushed out of tents and buildings in panic.
