Athens - An 5.0 magnitude quake shook Greece on Tuesday without causing injuries or damages.

"The epicentre of the earthquake was 50 km south of Athens, in waters off the coast of the island of Aegina," an Athens Geodynamic Institute official said. It was also felt in the capital Athens.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damages, the fire department said.
