Friday, 26 August 2016 - 8:26
Italy has declared a state of emergency in the regions worst hit by Wednesday's earthquake as hopes of finding more survivors fade.
Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has pledged €50m (£42m) in funds for rebuilding.
At least 250 people are now known to have died and 365 were injured. Teams have continued to search the rubble of toppled buildings for a second night.
However, hundreds of aftershocks have hampered the efforts of the 5,000 rescuers.
