Her mother is believed to have gone into labour as the 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit on Monday morning.

Neither of the girl's parents nor her four siblings are believed to have survived, according to locals in the small north Syrian town of Jindires.

Roughly a quarter of the town is believed to have been reduced to rubble by the quake, which has so far killed at least 6,300 people.

The death toll is likely to climb further as freezing weather and multiple aftershocks are hampering rescue efforts - despite international assistance.
