At least one person has been killed and nine injured after a 5.8-magnitude earthquake hit the Greek island of Crete. The man died when the dome of a church that was being renovated in the town of Arkalochori caved in. People were sent rushing out on to the streets when the earthquake struck. Several aftershocks followed. Civil protection authorities said many buildings had been damaged.
The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre initially recorded a magnitude of 6.5 while the United States Geological Survey put it at 6.0. The Athens Geodynamic Institute later said the 5.8 quake struck 23 kms north-west of the coastal village of Arvi, at a depth of 10 kms.
