A magnitude-6.0 earthquake shook the southwestern Turkish province of Antalya on Saturday but there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage, the NTV news agency said.

The quake was centered 100 kilometers (62 miles) off the coast of the Mediterranean city of Antalya, the provincial capital, at a depth of 11 kilometers (6.8 miles).

The provincial governor's office told NTV that no injuries or damage from the temblor had been reported thus far.

Antalya is one of Turkey's leading tourist destinations and its beaches are popular attractions during the summer months.

Earthquakes with a magnitude of 5 or less are common in much of Turkey, but they rarely cause significant damage.

Turkey's last major earthquake was a magnitude-7.1 temblor that struck the eastern province of Van in October 2011, killing 600 people. EFE
