CORRIERE DELLA SERA, IL SOLE 24/7 (Italy)
An earthquake killed at least 15 people in the northern Italian region of Emilia, just 10 days after another deadly temblor in the same region. Tuesday's 5.8 magnitude quake struck at 9 a.m., with an epicenter between the cities of Carpi, Medolla and Mirandola. At least five aftershocks were recorded.
Beyond the confirmed dead, seven people are missing, 200 injured and 6,000 evacuated. One of the victims is Don Ivan Martini, the priest of the village of Revereto. Il Corriere reports that he died in his church while trying to save a small statue of the Virgin Mary.
Among the other victims, at least nine were at their workplace -- a reminder of the workers killed in the earlier quake. Trade union leader Susanna Camusso has criticized the government of Prime Minister Mario Monti, saying authorities were wrong to send back people inside the buildings. Il Solereports that Monti held a press conference alongside the head of the Italian civil protection in the damaged region, explaining they were doing "everything that is necessary" to protect and help the population.
