Albania earthquake rescue effort intensifies Using sniffer dogs, they are sifting through rubble, 36 hours after the magnitude-6.4 tremor. Whole families have perished - and thousands are staying out in the open as powerful aftershocks hit. Most of the deaths occurred in the coastal city of Durres and the town of Thumane, close to the epicentre. Tuesday's earthquake was the strongest to hit Albania in decades. A tearful defence minister said three children were among those killed, and while homes could be rebuilt the 28 people killed could not be brought back. The quake struck 34km (21 miles) north-west of the capital, Tirana, as people slept in their beds during the early hours. The latest aftershock - a magnitude 5.6 - is said to have damaged a building in Durres next to one where intense rescue efforts are under way. Teams of volunteers have been assembled to are under way to treat hundred of thousands that are injured, reports show shortages of first Aid, food, water and shelter as winter approaches the eu continent.
