A 5.8-earthquake has killed at least eight people in northern Italy, a little over a week after another deadly quake hit nearby Parma. Tuesday's quake was centered near the town of Modena, in an area where many people are still living in tents after a 6.0 earthquake on May 20 that killed seven people. Aftershocks continued throughout the week and this newest quake has dealt even more damage to previously fractured buildings and homes. There are reports of at least one building collapse that is responsible for some of the deaths, with more poeple trapped under rubble.
