CCTV footage shows moment 6.7 magnitude quake strikes Bodrum cafe

CCTV footage filmed by Reuters showed people scrambling to leave a Bodrum cafe after a powerful earthquake struck early on Friday (July 21).

The magnitude 6.7 earthquake killed two people when it struck near major Turkish and Greek tourist destinations in the Aegean Sea, Turkish and Greek officials said.

Local officials said at least two people died and 20 were injured on the Greek holiday island of Kos, a popular destination particularly with British holidaymakers.

Across a narrow Aegean Sea waterway in Turkey's Bodrum, around 70 people were admitted to hospital, injured in their attempts to flee the overnight temblor.
