Two people have been killed and more than 200 injured after a powerful earthquake struck off the coast of Greek islands and Turkey, triggering a tsunami. Greek authorities confirmed the victims of the 6.5-magnitude quake, both men, were from Turkey and Sweden. Their names have yet to be released. The 6.5-magnitude quake struck at around 1am local time on Friday morning, rattling the Greek holiday resort of Kos, damaging buildings and the main port. A small tsunami flooded parts of the island as well as the Turkish town of Bodrum. The island's regional governor said the "main priority at the moment is saving lives" with at least 20 people in hospital with serious injuries. More than 120 people were wounded on Kos while a further 70 people suffered injuries in Bodrum. While other islands and Turkey's Aegean coast were hit, Kos bore the brunt of the quake as it was nearest to the epicentre, with all of the deaths and injuries reported there. Fallen bricks and other debris coated many streets, and the island's seafront road. Giorgos Hadjimarkos, regional governor, said four or five of the injuries were "worrying" and damaged buildings were being inspected. The Kos hospital said at least 20 of the injured had broken bones. A wall collapsed on a building dating to the 1930s, crushing people who were at the bar in the building's lower level, according to Kos Mayor Giorgos Kyritsis. Kos's "old town" area was littered with broken stone in the streets. Hotels had shattered glass and other damage, leaving hundreds of tourists to spend the rest of the night sleeping on beach loungers. "There was banging. There was shaking. The light was swinging, banging on the ceiling, crockery falling out of the cupboards," said Christopher Hackland from Edinburgh, who is a scuba instructor on Kos. "There was a lot of screaming and crying and hysterics coming from the hotel." Authorities had given advance warning of a tsunami, and witnesses described a "swelling" of the sea after the earthquake. A seafront road and parts of the island's main town were flooded, and the rising seawater pushed a boat onto the main road, causing several cars to slam into each other. Ferry services were cancelled until daylight because Kos's main port was damaged, and at least one ferry en route to the port was unable to dock. Other buildings damaged included an old mosque where a minaret collapsed and a 14th-century fortress at the entrance to the main port. Rescuers were checking for trapped people inside houses after the quake struck in the middle of the night and were heading to outlying villages to check for damage. Greek officials said aftershocks that struck were weaker but still could put at risk the buildings that were already damaged. The epicentre was 6 miles south of Bodrum, Turkey, and 10 miles east-northeast of Kos at a depth of 6 miles. In Turkey, the ensuing panic caused minor injuries, according to Esengul Civelek, governor of Mugla province. Greece and Turkey lie in an especially earthquake-prone zone.
