An earthquake beneath the sea shook northern Greece on Saturday, and at least one person was reported to be injured, police said.
The Institute of Geophysics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki said the temblor had a magnitude of 6.3; the US Geological Survey reported a magnitude of 6.4.
The epicenter was between the islands of Samothraki and Lemnos, and was 10 kilometers (6 miles) deep, the USGS said.
Police on Lemnos say part of the ceiling at the airport fell, injuring a female British tourist, but released no further details about her injuries.
