A HUGE earthquake has rocked Turkey as it destroyed buildings and triggered a tsunami that swept through coastal towns.
The enormous tremor was felt as far away as Athens and Istanbul, the US Geological survey said.
At least 20 buildings in Izmir, a Turkish city with population of 4.4million, are said to have collapsed, Mayor Tunc Soyer told CNN Turk.
Rescue efforts are already under way – but there is no confirmation on the number of deaths of injuries.
