L’Aquila Quake: Italy Scientists Guilty Of Manslaughter


Six Italian scientists and an ex-government official have been sentenced to six years in prison over the 2009 deadly earthquake in L’Aquila.

A regional court found them guilty of multiple manslaughter.

The 6.3 magnitude quake devastated the city and killed 309 people.
