An earthquake in northern Italy has killed at least three people and caused thousands of others to flee into the streets, officials say.

The 5.9-magnitude quake struck in the middle of the night, about 35km (22 miles) north of the city of Bologna.

The officials say the three victims died when the buildings they were working in overnight collapsed.

Italian TV showed damaged factories and church steeples in the region. Aftershocks have been reported.

Rescue teams are now combing the area amid reports that a number of people may be buried under rubble.

The earthquake was at a relatively shallow depth of 10km.
