Rock crushes holiday rooms on Greek island of Crete

A "huge rock" fell from a hillside and crushed two rooms at a coastal hotel on the Greek island of Crete, killing one Slovenian woman as she slept and injuring her young son, Qazet.az reports according to police.

The landslip happened in the early hours of Sunday at the Markos Studios, a family-run beachside complex of rooms to rent built under a rocky hillside at Ierapetra.

Police said the rock destroyed two rooms. The victim's 51-year-old husband was in a different room and was unhurt.
