Earthquake survivors sought comfort amid the tragedy that levelled their cities and killed hundreds of people as they celebrated Easter Sunday Mass in makeshift chapels across central Italy. Premier Silvio Berlusconi, who attended a Mass for rescue workers and volunteers in the city of L'Aquila, declared the emergency phase over, but said it would still be months before most people displaced by the quake will know if they can go back to their homes. The mood was sombre as about 150 faithful - mostly elderly people - celebrated the holiest day on the Roman Catholic calendar in L'Aquila's main tent city, where the population has declined to 1,300 from a peak of 1,700 as many with means find a more comfortable place to stay. L'Aquila Archbishop Giuseppe Molinari, who celebrated Mass before a small statue of the Madonna and a crucifix hanging from a tent wall, acknowledged their anger over the huge losses they had suffered. EU officials said Italy can draw from a one billion euro EU solidarity fund which was set up to help member nations recoup costs after natural disasters.
