The quake was also felt in Turkey, Egypt, Syria and Israel, according to reports.

The epicentre is 149km south east of Greek island Karpathos, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS), which estimates the quake was 6.0 on the Richter scale.

The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (ESMC), meanwhile, reported it as a 6.4 tremor.
