EARTHQUAKE: Italy declares State of Emergency as hope fades on more survivors

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 50 million euro in funds for rebuilding.

At least 267 people are now known to have died and 400 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 as another magnitude-4.7 tremor struck early on Friday.
