Death toll from earthquake in Italy climbs to 73
AMATRICE, Italy - Italy's civil protection agency says the death toll from the magnitude 6 earthquake in central Italy has reached 73.
The head of the agency's emergency service, Immacolata Postiglione, gave the breakdown at a briefing Wednesday but stressed that the figures were still provisional.
The civil protection agency is coordinating the rescue, which has involved hundreds of crews from across Italy and even the Vatican. It is setting up tent cities around the hard hit cities to care for the thousands of people left homeless.
