    Rescue workers search through the rubble of an earthquake damaged building in the central Italian village of Amatrice on August 26, 2016, two day after a 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck the region killing some 267 people.

An increasingly forlorn search for victims of the earthquake that brought carnage to central Italy entered a third day on August 26, 2016 as a day of mourning was declared for victims of a disaster that has claimed at least 267 lives. Releasing the new confirmed death toll, Immacolata Postiglione, head of the Civil Protection agency's emergency unit, indicated there had been no survivors found overnight in any of the remote mountain villages devastated by August 24's powerful pre-dawn quake. At least 367 people have been hospitalised with injuries but no one has been pulled alive from the piles of collapsed masonry since August 24 evening.

Syrian activists accused President Bashar al-Assad's forces of launching a gas attack that killed nearly 500 people on Wednesday, in what would, if confirmed, be by far the worst reported use of chemical arms in the two-year-old civil war. The Syrian armed forces strongly denied using chemical weapons. Syrian state television said the accusations were fabricated to distract a team of U.N. chemical weapons experts which arrived three days ago.
