A powerful earthquake has struck off Turkey's Aegean coast, north of the Greek island of Samos.

The 7.0 magnitude tremor was centred off Turkey's Izmir province, the US Geological Survey said.

The shallow tremor is reported to have triggered a mini-tsunami that flooded Izmir and the Greek port of Samos.

Four have been reported dead and 120 injured in with 20 buildings collapsed and people trapped in the rubble
