At least two people died and 120 were injured due to the earthquake that took place in the Aegean Sea.

The Greek island of Kos took most of the damage; this is where both fatalities were reported. The 6.7-magnitude earthquake, which occurred not far from the Turkish coast, evoked a small tsunami.

An ancient fortress of Hospitallers and a mosque’s prayer tower took damage. The maritime traffic was suspended; the local airport, on the other hand, operates as usual.
