Brussels, November 20 - The European Union on
Tuesday gave the green light to 670 million euros in aid for
Italy's Emilia Romagna region, hit by two devastating
earthquakes earlier this year.
The aid package, which had been controversially held up for
two days by five countries earlier this month, will get a final
OK from the European Parliament Wednesday, EU sources said.
Germany, Netherlands, Finland, Sweden and Britain blocked
the reconstruction aid earmarked by the EU's solidarity fund on
November 9 and 10.
The May 20 and May 29 quakes, which hit Emilia more than
Romagna, killed 27 people, destroyed and damaged many historic
buildings and artworks and left the region's economy on its
knees.
