New 7.1-magnitude quake hits Italy
An earthquake measuring 7.1 magnitude struck in central Italy on Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties, NDTV reported.
The USGS said the earthquake was centred 68 km (42 miles) east southeast of Perugia. It was 108 km (67) deep.
An earthquake of magnitude 6.4 struck east of the city on Wednesday, the second of the evening whose tremors were felt as far away as the capital Rome.
The earthquakes came two months after almost 300 people were killed in the region by a earthquake that leveled several small towns.
