The Austrian army on Saturday suspended rescue operations in quake-ravaged Turkey due to a worsening "security situation", a spokesman said.

"There have been clashes between groups," he told AFP without giving details. The spokesman said the Austrian troops were sheltering "in a base camp with other international organisations, awaiting instructions".
