A powerful earthquake has hit Albania in the middle of the night, forcing people to run into the streets. Dozens of people have been reported injured and several buildings collapsed, while others appeared to crack.

The 6.4-magnitude quake struck between the port town of Durres and the capital Tirana, at a depth of 10km (6.2 miles), according to the US Geological Survey.

Witnesses said residents were rushing out of their houses in panic, but an unknown number of people could still be trapped inside buildings.

One person has died after jumping from a building, Defence Ministry spokesperson confirmed.

Officials said that the most damage was seen in Durres, while at least 50 people in Tirana had to be hospitalized.
