An earthquake with a magnitude of 4.3 rattled southwestern Turkey on Saturday, according to the country's Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD).

The quake struck off the coast of the Marmaris district in Muğla province at 17:51 p.m. local time (14:51 p.m. GMT), the authority said.

The epicenter of the earthquake was specified as 75 kilometers away from the district center, at a depth of approximately 45 kilometers in the Mediterranean Sea.
