Several killed after major earthquake strikes Turkey and Greece

At least four people are dead and 120 injured after a powerful earthquake struck off Turkey's Aegean coast, north of the Greek island of Samos.
 
About 20 buildings collapsed.
 
The 7.0 magnitude tremor was centered off Turkey's Izmir province.
 
The shallow tremor is reported to have triggered a mini-tsunami that flooded Izmir and the Greek port of Samos.
 
The quake was felt as far away as Athens and Istanbul.
 
Turkey and Greece both sit on fault lines and earthquakes are common.
