No injuries were reported among the 157 passengers that included a baby, the civil protection authority said.

The flight from Berlin, originally heading to Athens, was rerouted after issuing a distress signal as it flew over the Halkidiki peninsula in northern Greece, the agency said.

The crew reported a fire in the cockpit, but emergency services deployed to the scene did not have to intervene, state news agency ANA said.
