For over a week digital clocks and watches in Sicily are complicating their owners by running more than 15 minutes fast, local media said.

The mysterious time changes caught the attention of two young locals, who set up a Facebook page calling for those affected to come forward.

One of the young men, Francesco Nicosia, told French online magazine Rue89 "I realised something was wrong when I started getting to work earlier. After some investigation I noticed that I wasn't the only one who was on time, which is quite rare here in Sicily."

Explanations involving aliens, poltergeists, volcanic activity on Mount Etna and solar explosions have been put forward. Among the most credible explanations is electrical disturbance caused by underwater cables.
