At least three have died as a 6.8 magnitude earthquake rattled the Philippines' second biggest island, Mindanao on Sunday, 15 December.

The victims include a six-year-old girl who was in her family's house when it collapsed, according to officials.

Footage shot in Davao, Mindanao's largest city, shows damaged buildings and streets in the aftermath of the quake, as people gathered outside. Classes have been suspended for Monday and bridges closed due safety concerns, as the structures may have been damaged.

Located on the so called 'Ring of Fire', an area of high volcanic and tectonic activity, the Philippines is prone to earthquakes. A series of quakes in October of this year caused over 800 injuries, with 40 people dead or missing.
