The eastern Aegean island of Kos was jolted by another earthquake yesterday measuring 5.1 on the Richter scale. According to reports, the temblor struck at 10.42 a.m. Its epicenter was in the sea, 38 kilometers northeast of the island, and at a depth of 10 kilometers. No damage or injuries were reported.
