Women cry in front of damaged houses in a street in the central Italian village of Illica, near Accumoli, on August 24, 2016 after a powerful earthquake rocked central Italy.
A powerful pre-dawn earthquake devastated mountain villages in central Italy on August 24, 2016, leaving at least 73 people dead, dozens more injured or trapped under the rubble and thousands temporarily homeless. Scores of buildings were reduced to dusty piles of masonry in communities close to the epicentre of the pre-dawn quake, which had a magnitude of between 6.0 and 6.2, according to monitors.
