'Worse than L'Aquila' say rescuers

Toll may end up higher

(ANSA) - Rome, August 25 - The earthquake that struck central Italy Wednesday is worse than that which killed 309 people in and around the Abruzzo capital L'Aquila in 2009, rescuers said Thursday.
    "The toll could end up higher," officials said.
    The toll currently stands at 247 dead and 264 injured who are in hospital, but there are reports of more than 400 injured and an unspecified number of missing.
