The Greek island of Rhodes, a popular destination for tourists, suffered from a tremor overnight, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (ESMC) has stated.
So far, there have been no reports of any injuries or casualties caused by the quake, but the shockwaves were reportedly felt across the Mediterranean - in Turkey, Egypt, Syria, and Israel. According to EMSC, the epicentre of the earthquake was located 219 kilometres (136 miles) south of Rhodes.
