Earthquake rattles southern Greece

By Agencies


The Athens Geodynamic Institute says an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.2 has struck southern Greece. It did not cause any damage or injuries.


The institute says the earthquake occurred at 9:10 am (0710GMT) and had an epicenter beneath the seabed, 275 kilometers south southwest of Athens.


A month ago, two strong quakes with magnitudes of 6.5 and 6.4 struck the same area and were felt as far away as Italy and Egypt.

They did not cause any significant damage and nobody was hurt. The institute says Friday’s earthquake is considered to be an aftershock. (AP)
