ISTANBUL - A 5.4 magnitude earthquake struck Elazig province in eastern Turkey on Thursday and was felt in the neighboring province of Diyarbakir.

There were no immediate reports of large-scale damage.

In March 2010 a 6.0 magnitude earthquake in Elazig killed 51 villagers in the sparsely populated area.

Turkey, crossed by many fault lines, frequently suffers earthquakes. An earthquake measuring 7.4 killed about 18,000 people in August 1999.
