Buildings collapse as earthquake jolts Greece and Turkey
Turkey : Four people were killed and more than 120 people were injured after a massive 7.0 magnitude earthquake jolted Turkey's Western coast and parts of Greece on Friday.
"Unfortunately, four of our citizens lost their lives in the earthquake" that destroyed buildings in Turkey's coastal resort city of Izmir, Health Minister Fahrettin Koca tweeted.
The 7.0 magnitude tremor was centred off Turkey's Izmir province, the US Geological Survey said.
The shallow tremor is reported to have triggered a mini-tsunami that flooded Izmir and the Greek port of Samos.
The USGS said the quake - which was felt as far away as Athens and Istanbul - struck at a depth of 10km (six miles), although Turkish officials said it was 16km below ground.
Turkey and Greece both sit on fault lines and earthquakes are common.
