MILAN - A strong earthquake struck northern Italy on Tuesday, killing at least six people and spreading panic among residents still living in tents after a tremor shook the region just over a week ago, destroying their homes.

Italian news agencies said six people were confirmed dead and many people were injured.

"The situation is very serious, some people are stuck under the rubble," Alberto Silvestri, the mayor of the San Felice sul Panaro told television channel SkyTG24.
