Mom, three kids latest quake victims
Durres – Search teams pulled the bodies of a mother, her twoyear-old twins and seven-year-old son from the rubble of a house in the western Albanian town of Durres, as the death toll from the country’s worst quake yet climbed to 46.
European and Albanian search teams also pulled a dead body from the rubble of a hotel along Durres’s beach on the Adriatic Sea as they continued looking for survivors of Tuesday’s magnitude 6.4 tremor.
There have been more than 500 aftershocks since then, some with a magnitude of more than 5.0, rocking buildings and terrifying residents.
Albania, which marked the 107th anniversary of its independence on Thursday, has not experienced a deadly earthquake since 40 died in a tremor in 1979.
Italy, Greece, Romania and others have sent search teams to look for survivors. –
