A 4.8-magnitude earthquake jolted Turkey's western province of Manisa on Tuesday, according to the country's Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD).


The earthquake occurred at a depth of about seven kilometers (4.3 miles), with its epicenter in the district of Kirkagac -- roughly 60 km (37 miles) from the provincial center, AFAD said.

"Currently, there has been no damage and no loss," said Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu.
