    A strong quake that hit the Greek and Turkish coast on the Aegean Sea has injured more than a hundred people on the Greek island of Kos, regional official Giorgos Halkidios was cited as saying by Fox News on Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Island mayor Giorgos Kyritsis has also confirmed to the Athens News Agency that two people lost their lives after a roof collapsed on them in a pub. Images on social media showed crumbling buildings and streets littered with rubble.

    The magnitude 6.7 earthquake struck at 1:31 a.m. local time, triggering several strong aftershocks and a small tsunami wave that flooded the coastline. The US Geological Survey said the epicenter was 6 miles southeast from the Turkish port city of Bodrum.
