A powerful magnitude 6.7 earthquake struck near major Turkish and Greek tourist destinations in the Aegean Sea early on Friday.

Local officials said at least two people died and 100 were injured on the Greek holiday island of Kos, a popular holiday destination.

Across in Turkey’s Bodrum, around 70 people were admitted to hospital.

The earthquake was very shallow, only 10 km below the seabed, the US Geological Survey said.

Turkey is prone to earthquakes because it is located between the Arabian plate and Eurasian plate.
