Greece has been hit by an earthquake which struck just off the coast of Crete.
The 6.0 magnitude shock was felt as far away as Athens when it hit this morning, The Sun reports.
Associated Press bureau chief for southeast Europe, Elena Becatoros tweeted: “#Earthquake with preliminary magnitude of 6.0 strikes #Crete in southern #Greece; felt in Athens. No immediate reports of damage.”
Another source described it as “deep” and “felt in many many parts of the country”.
Properties, including universities and schools, have reportedly been evacuated.
The tremor comes a day after quakes rocked nearby Albania and Bosnia yesterday.
At least 23 people died after the magnitude 6.4 quake struck 19 miles northwest of the capital, Tirana, say defence officials.
