President Sends Letter of Condolence to Italy

Today, Icelandic President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson sent his and the Icelandic nation’s condolences to Italian President Sergio Mattarella and the Italian nation, following yesterday’s deadly earthquake in the Aquila region of central Italy, RÚV reports.

The president called the natural disaster a reminder of nature’s great power, but also a reminder of the values demonstrated by rescuers and volunteers who have come to the victims’ aid.

About 250 bodies have been found in the rubble and hundreds are injured, many seriously. A considerable number of people is believed to be buried under the rubble, and the villages where the earthquake hit are in ruins following the quake which measured 6.3.
