An earthquake has rattled southern Greece and was widely felt in the capital, Athens. There were no immediate reports of damage or injury and no tsunami warnings.

The quake struck at 6:45 a.m. local time (0345 GMT) and had an epicenter beneath the seabed about 140 kilometers (86 miles) south of Athens and near the island of Milos.

Greek radio stations receiving call-ins from listeners said the quake was widely felt across the country, from the southern island of Crete to northern Greece.
