It was one of the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded in Turkey, even shaking buildings hundreds of miles away in Israel.

Most of the initial casualties from the magnitude 7.8 temblor that hit early Monday were in Turkey and neighboring Syria. The two countries have reported more than 500 deaths, but the death toll was expected to increase.

Here are some pictures showing the aftermath of the earthquake, starting with an injured child getting help in the Syrian town of Jandaris, which sits in the rebel-held part of Aleppo Province.
