'G8 summit begins in L'Aquila...'

'At the Group of Eight summit in Italy, the leaders of the richest countries said there could be worse to come before the situation improved.

Meeting in L'Aquila, Italy, G8 leaders issued a statement warning: "The economic situation remains uncertain and significant risks remain to economic and financial stability".

... Though the summit was originally meant to take place on the island of La Maddalena, Berlusconi opted to move it to the quake zone, he says, to stimulate its local economy and raise awareness of the remaining devastation from the April 6 quake.'
