At least 50 people are dead and 50,000 homeless in an earthquake which has flattened parts of central Italy.

Rescuers were digging bodies out from the collapsed ruins of dozens of houses and emergency services said the death toll was ''bound to rise.''

The tremor struck at just after 3.30am local time this morning and measured 6.3 on the Richter scale.

Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has declared a state of emergency for the central Abruzzo region where the quake struck.

The epicenter was close to the city of L'Aquila in the centre of Italy, about 100 miles north east of Rome.
