Earthquake Jolts Western Turkey and Greek Islands

A powerful earthquake shook the Aegean Sea on Friday, hitting coastal cities in western Turkey and nearby Greek islands and leaving at least eight people dead.

The earthquake flattened several buildings in Izmir, the city’s mayor said, and triggered a groundswell that flooded coastal areas. “We stand with our citizens, who were affected by the earthquake, with all our state’s capabilities,” Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.
