Rest in Peace – learning from the Italian tragedy

April 10th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Politics


More than 150 people are being buried today in a mass funeral in Italy. They died in Monday’s earthquake near Rome.

In total 287 people are now known to have been killed in the natural disaster. But Italy’s president admits more could have been done to prevent it.

Cheap and dangerous building techniques have been used for too long.

Does that sound familiar? Syria’s building regulations are also not enforced properly. And for similar reasons to Italy – corruption.

People have already died in building collapses in Aleppo in recent years – 4 died two years ago and 31 died in 2002.

Just imagine if there was an earthquake.
