Chile struck by magnitude 8.3 earthquake

Chile has evacuated one million residents along its coastline, following a powerful earthquake that caused buildings to sway in the South American country.

The quake, with a magnitude of 8.3, struck around 144 miles north-west of the capital Santiago.

It also triggered tsunami waves of up to 4.5 metres in some places.

Five people have died and at least one person has been reported missing, officials say.

Tsunami alerts were also issued for Peru, Hawaii, parts of California and as far away as New Zealand.
