Businesses Reopening After Italy Quake

L'AQUILA, Italy (AP) - Businesses in earthquake-ravaged central
Italy are beginning to reopen amid the devastation, which includes
at least 287 dead.

Police say the victims include 20 children and teens.

Premier Silvio Berlusconi said the government also had increased
the sum allocated for emergency aid to $133 million), and that
reconstruction would cost several billion dollars.

There were a number of aftershocks Thursday and a particularly
sharply felt tremor rocked the quake-stricken area at 9:38 p.m.,
local time.

Italy's National Geophysics Institute said the aftershock
registered a magnitude 4.9.

The strong aftershocks rattled residents - nearly 18,000 of whom
are living in tent camps around the stricken region.
