SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – AFP:  A 5.7-magnitude earthquake hit the southern Greek Peloponnese, the national earthquake observatory said, with no immediate reports of injury or damage.

The “very strong” quake hit at 0345 GMT on Friday with its epicentre recorded between the Peloponnese and the island of Milos, 145km (90 miles) south of Athens.

The Greek authorities said there were no reports of injuries or material damage.

An aftershock measuring 4.7 was recorded three minutes after the main quake, according to the observatory in the Greek capital.

Earthquakes are common in Greece. Thousands of people were left homeless in January by a quake on the Greek Ionian island of Cephalonia.
