Faces Of Italy's Earthquake Victims As Death Toll Rises

These are the faces of some of the 267 people killed in the devastating Italian earthquake that flattened entire towns when it struck in the early hours of Wednesday.

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. Immacolata Postiglione, head of the Civil Protection agency's emergency unit, indicated there had been no survivors found overnight.

The death toll rose to 267 today with 367 people hospitalised with injuries. May their souls rest in peace.
