ISTANBUL (Reuters) - An earthquake of 5.7 magnitude struck just off Turkey's northwestern Aegean coast on Tuesday, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said, but there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
The quake struck 59 miles (95 km) southwest of the Turkish city of Canakkale at a depth of 6.1 miles (10 km) and was felt in Istanbul to the east and Athens in the west.
