Italy quake: Powerful tremor near Norcia destroys buildings

The quakes come nearly two months after a major earthquake killed almost 300 people and destroyed several towns. Sunday's quake measured magnitude 6.6, larger than August's quake and aftershocks last week, and was at a depth of only 1.5km (0.9 miles). There were no immediate reports of casualties, but tremors were felt in the capital Rome.
