Italy quake: Thousands spend night in temporary accommodation

Thousands of people in central Italy have spent the night in cars, tents and temporary shelters following the fourth earthquake in the area in three months.

The 6.6-magnitude quake - Italy's strongest in decades - struck close to the region where nearly 300 people were killed by a quake in August.

This time no-one appears to have died in the tremor near the town of Norcia, but about 20 people were injured.

Powerful aftershocks are still bringing down masonry.

Several were felt overnight into Monday, including one with a magnitude of 4.2.

In Norcia, in the Umbria region, some locals have decided to stay in their homes.

Others spent the night in tents pitched near the town or have taken up the authorities' offer of shelter on the Adriatic Coast.

Prime Minister Matteo Renzi is chairing a cabinet meeting to discuss emergency reconstruction efforts.
