New quake destroys buildings in Italy

Buildings collapsed today as much of northern Italy was hit by a 5.8-magnitude earthquake.

The buildings were destroyed in areas hit by a larger earthquake on May 20.

There were no initial reports of casualties.

The earthquake struck at around 9am local time (8am Irish time) and was centred 25 miles north west of Bologna.

It caused tents housing evacuees from the previous earthquake to shake.

Schools and shops throughout the area were evacuated as a precaution.
