ROME, Italy (CNN) -- Rescuers were digging through rubble with bare hands for survivors after a powerful earthquake hit a remote region of central Italy Monday, killing at least 50 people, leaving thousands homeless and destroying many historic buildings.

Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi declared a state of emergency, warning the death toll from 6.3-magnitude quake could be much higher than the figure, including five children, so far reported by local media.

Maybe this is Obama's way of making Brown feel better about the DVD's.
