Rescue crews find last quake victim

Rescue crews have removed the last body of a worker buried beneath a collapsed factory, bringing the toll in the second deadly quake to hit Italy's Emilia region to 17.

Tuesday's magnitude 5.8 quake felled old buildings and new factories and warehouses in an area of Italy north of Bologna that was still recovering from a stronger quake 9 days before.

That quake measured 6.0 and killed seven people.

Crews pulled the last body from the rubble of a factory in the town of Medolla.

Three others also died in the structure.

Civil Protection authorities in Rome say no one else is known to be missing.
