Italy quake toll rises amid hunt for victims

Italy hunts for quake survivors

L’AQUILA, Italy – Relatives of the missing watched in agony Tuesday as rescuers dug desperately by hand for earthquake survivors, jarred by a strong aftershock that drove home the continuing danger in this historic central Italian city.

The death toll from Italy‘s worst earthquake in three decades jumped to 207 as bodies were recovered and identified. Tent camps housed some of the 50,000 left homeless by Italy’s worst earthquake in three decades, but many spent the night in the chill mountain air without blankets or covers.

Two buildings in the suburb of Pettino collapsed following the aftershock, the news agency ANSA reported, citing fire officials. No one was believed to be inside either building.
