Italy earthquake death toll rises to 292

Authorities say two more bodies have been pulled out from the rubble of a central Italy earthquake, raising the overall death toll to 292.


Civil Protection official Titti Postiglione told reporters in Rieti, the local provincial capital, that the corpses were found Monday in Amatrice, which now counts 231 dead. She didn't say where the bodies were found in the hill town, but all bodies found in the last few days were located in the rubble of the Hotel Roma.


Amatrice's mayor has said about 10 people are unaccounted for. Eleven people were killed in Accumoli, a small town near Amatrice, both in the Lazio region which includes Rome, while 50 people were killed by the quake in the neighboring Le Marche region.
