A magnitude-6 earthquake struck in the Mediterranean Sea, south of the Turkish province of Antalya.

The quake, which hit on Saturday (local time), caused panic, but no damage or casualties were reported.

The Istanbul-based Kandilli seismology centre said the earthquake occurred at 5.21pm, and was centred some 84 kilometres (52 miles) southwest of the holiday resort of Alanya. It was also felt in the neighbouring province of Mersin and throughout the island of Cyprus, where people reported items swaying inside their homes.

The Cyprus Geological Survey had a slightly different reading, saying the tremor measured 6.3.
