Aid-laden navy ships set sail for quake-stricken Cephalonia

Two navy ships, the Prometheus and Chios, sailed for Cephalonia on Saturday to transport medicines and basic goods to the Ionian island, which was rocked by an earthquake last Sunday.

Six doctors were also on board the ships.

The Chios can accommodate 250 people if needed.

Safety checks on homes and other buildings on the island are continuing.
