An earthquake measuring 6.3 on the Richter scale rocked central Italy.
The quake struck at about 3.35 a.m. (0135 GMT) and was centered in the mountainous Abruzzo region east of Rome.
Residents in many parts of central Italy felt the quake and some ran out into the streets. Residents of Rome, which is rarely hit by seismic activity, were woken by the quake. Furniture rattled, lights swayed and car alarms went off.
