L'Aquila marks quake anniversary


L’Aquila is remembering, one year on.

The Italian city is marking the anniversary of the earthquake that killed some 300 people.

As well as those who died, many more were injured, and an estimated 60,000 were left homeless.

One woman who took part in a vigil said: “To think that my son was here, really happy, he was 22, studying law. He had the best marks, praised by a jury. His dream was to progress with his studies, his art work”

One man said: “Now we have to start thinking about those who survived in Aquila. Because this is still a ghost town one year after the quake. I think that’s unacceptable.”
