At least 60 people have been killed in an earthquake in central Italy.
The magnitude 6.2 quake hit at 03:36 (01:36 GMT), 100km (65 miles) north-east of Rome, not far from Perugia.
Many of the dead were in Accumoli, close to the epicentre, and a short distance away in Amatrice, where three-quarters of houses were destroyed.
Some of the worst damage was in Amatrice.
Prime Minister Matteo Renzi paid tribute to the volunteers and civil defence officials who had rushed to the scene in the middle of the night and used their bare hands to dig for survivors.
Many people are still believed buried under the rubble, and the death toll is expected to rise.
