MORE BOD­IES LO­CATED BE­NEATH RUB­BLE IN ITALY QUAKE ZONE

Metro USA (New York) - - News -

Res­cuers be­lieve they have found more bod­ies buried deep in the rub­ble of the ru­ined town of Amatrice, five days af­ter a dev­as­tat­ing earth­quake struck cen­tral Italy, killing at least 290 peo­ple. Res­i­dents of the hill town es­ti­mate that 10 peo­ple were still miss­ing and emer­gency ser­vices said they had lo­cated three corpses in Amatrice’s Ho­tel Roma, which, like much of the his­toric cen­ter, was wrecked by Wed­nes­day’s quake. Deputy Mayor Gian­luca Car­loni said his un­cle’s body had still not been re­cov­ered from the ho­tel, which was par­tic­u­larly busy at this time of year be­cause of a food fes­ti­val. “It is ab­so­lutely vi­tal to fin­ish as soon as pos­si­ble this ini­tial phase to make sure that there are no more bod­ies un­der the rub­ble,” he said.
