A woman has been found dead on Lesbos after her house collapsed following a strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.2, the Greek island’s mayor said.
Spyros Galinos said the woman was found in the southern village of Vrisa, which was badly affected by Monday’s earthquake.
At least 10 people were injured on the island following the undersea quake which was also felt in western Turkey, including in Istanbul, and on neighbouring Greek islands.
