More than 5,000 people were killed and at least 15,000 injured in southeastern Turkey and over the border in Syria, as a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck in the early hours of Monday near the city of Gaziantep, followed by numerous powerful aftershocks.

The race against the clock has now begun for rescuers to find survivors in the rubble, amid winter weather conditions. The World Health Organization is warning that the death toll may rise dramatically as more victims are found amid the debris.

Here is a selection of how international newspapers featured the death, devastation and faint hopes of finding survivors, on their front pages Tuesday morning.
