In two days since earthquake killed 267 people

Strong aftershocks rattled residents and rescue crews alike on Friday as hopes began to dim that firefighters would find any more survivors from Italy's earthquake.
The death toll rose to 267 on Friday with 387 people hospitalised with injuries, the Civil Protection agency said.
     Immacolata Postiglione, head of the agency's emergency unit, indicated there had been no survivors found overnight as rescuers sifted through rubble for a third day.
     It has been more than a day and a half had since the last person was extracted alive from the rubble. The first funerals will take place on Friday for some of the victims: in Rome, for the son of a local police chief; in Pomezia Terme for two grandmothers and their two grandchildren.
     Renzi also announced a new earthquake prevention plan as questions mounted over why so many people had died just seven years after the nearby city of L'Aquila was devastated by a quake that killed 300 people.
