    Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi, Tuesday, said 207 people were confirmed dead, while 15 people were still missing, after the earthquake that hit the city of L'Aquila, east of Rome, on Monday.
    The Italian premier said rescue operations to look for survivors would continue for another 48 hours.
    The 6.3-magnitude quake struck at 0330 (0130 GMT) close to L'Aquila.
    Altogether, 26 cities and towns have been damaged, officials say. In L'Aquila, 95km (60 miles) north-east of Rome, between 3,000 and 10,000 buildings in the medieval city may have been damaged.
    Between 30,000 and 40,000 people are believed to have lost their homes and the authorities are working to find them shelter before nightfall....
