Another strong aftershock jolts central Italy

L’AQUILA, Italy (Reuters) - A 5.2 magnitude aftershock struck the same central Italian area hit by Monday’s devastating quake that killed at least 272 people, the U.S. Geological Survey said on Thursday.

The aftershock, which hit at 2:53 a.m. (1:53 a.m. British time), could be felt in Rome, some 100 km (60 miles) to the west, witnesses said. It was not immediately clear whether the tremor had caused any damage in the Abruzzo region shaken by Monday’s quake.
