The Foreign Ministry warned Israeli citizens not to travel to the Greek holiday island of Kos following an earthquake early on Friday.

A powerful earthquake killed at least two people and injured scores when it struck near major Turkish and Greek tourist destinations in the Aegean Sea early on Friday, officials said.

Local officials said 100 people were injured.

Turkey's disaster and emergency management authority, AFAD, said the earthquake had a magnitude of 6.3, with its epicenter 11 km (7 miles) from the nearest settlement, the village of Camlik. Other reports put the quake magnitude at 6.7.
