Fourth earthquake in months destroys villages in central Italy

A 6.6 earthquake, the strongest in Italy since 1980 wiped down the historical centers of Norcia, Visso, Preci and other villages in Central Italy. It's the fourth earthquake in three months with the first one being the August 24th quake that destroyed Amatrice and other towns, killing 298 people. Even though officials reported zero casualties, the St. Benedict monastery of Norcia, symbol and pilgrimage site of the village was destroyed, along with other buildings. Civil protection counted 3,000 displaced only in Norcia, adding to the tens of thousands already displaced from the other quakes. Al-Jazeera Sonia Gallego reports from Norcia.
