ISTANBUL, Jan 8 (Reuters) - An earthquake of 5.7 magnitude
struck just off Turkey's northwestern Aegean coast on Tuesday,
the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said, but there were no
immediate reports of casualties or damage.

The quake struck 59 miles (95 km) southwest of the Turkish
city of Canakkale at a depth of 6.1 miles (10 km) and was felt
in Istanbul to the east and Athens in the west.
