At least eight people were killed on Tuesday when a strong earthquake rocked northeastern Italy, just nine days after another quake in the same region wrought death and destruction.
The 5.8 magnitude quake struck about (40 miles) east of the city of Parma, according to the Geographical Institute of Modena, and sent panicked residents rushing into the streets.
It followed a 6.0 magnitude quake in the industrial northeast on May 20 which killed six people and left thousands in makeshift tent dwellings, with many homes and historic buildings reduced to rubble.
At least three victims were workers crushed by falling rubble.
We will continue to monitor this situation and keep you informed of any further developments.
