EC releases Italy quake aid


Rome, December 11 - The European Commission 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, approved at a European Council meeting last month,
had been controversially held up for two days by five countries
earlier in November.
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
The package will also help parts of two other regions less
severely affected, Veneto and Lombardy.
