ANTALYA. KAZINFORM – There are no Kazakhstanis among those injured in the fire which erupted in Antalya’s Manavgat district in Turkey, Kazinform has learnt from Kazakhstan’s Ambassador in Turkey Abzal Saparbekuly.

Ambassador Saparbekuly shared a post on his official Facebook page in which he revealed that there are no nationals of Kazakhstan among the victims and those injured in the forest fire.

According to the Turkish mass media, the wildfire engulfed the area of 60 ha and its area may have increased 3-4fold. Around 50 villages have been evacuated. The fire have reportedly destroyed up to 7-8 villages.
