11 May 11 - At least 10 people were killed and dozens injured after a magnitude 5.3 earthquake toppled several buildings in southern Spain, near the town of Lorca, officials say.


The quake struck at a depth of just 1km (0.6 miles), the US Geological Survey reported, and followed a 4.4 magnitude tremor about two hours earlier.

Lines of cars lay crushed under tons of rubble, old buildings were badly damaged, and a local hospital had to be evacuated.

The BBC's Sarah Rainsford in Madrid says the quake is the most serious to hit Spain in about 50 years.

A number of aftershocks have been felt in the region, and authorities fear the death toll could rise.
