Earthquake in the Aegean rattles Greece and Turkey

A powerful earthquake has struck off Turkey’s Aegean coast, north of the Greek island of Samos, writes BBC.

The 7.0 magnitude tremor, about 17km (11 miles) off the coast of western Izmir province, was felt as far away as Athens and Istanbul, the US Geological Survey said.

There was no word on casualties but images from the Turkish city of Izmir showed buildings that had collapsed. Earthquakes are common in Turkey and Greece.
