>> Buildings were left in ruins and 200 people injured as the Greek island of Kos and Bodrum in Turkey dealt with the aftermath of an earthquake which struck early Friday. Officials say at least two people were killed on Kos by falling masonry and several more were left injured by tremors and around 40 aftershocks.

CCTV footage of a cafe in the Turkish City of Bodrum shows diners running out of the building as it starts to shake. The magnitude 6.7 tremor also caused a small tsunami at Turkey's Gumbad Marina, wrecking boats with a small but still powerful wave. Tourists there decided to camp outside fearing aftershocks.

Historical buildings on Kos were seriously damaged. Churches and mosques displaying signs of the quake. Both Bodrum and Kos are major tourist hubs. The UK foreign office advised its nationals in the affected areas to follow local official advice and told people with upcoming holidays to contact their tour operators.

Hundreds of shaken tourists were stranded at Kos airport which closed temporarily. Turkey is prone to earthquakes because it's said its on a major fault line. In 1999, two massive earthquakes killed about 20,000 people in the country's densely populated Northwest. The same year, a 5.9 magnitude tremor killed 143 people in Greece.
