Rescuers in Italy believe they have found more bodies buried deep in the rubble of Amatrice, five days after the earthquake.

Residents of the hill town believe around 10 people are still missing.

Fears are now being raised about those who have been left homeless by the quake.

Yesterday, fire fighters said they found six more bodies in the rubble of a local hotel.

Meanwhile Pope Francis says he wants to visit some of the villages devastated by the earthquake.

He says the Catholic Church shares their suffering.

The town of Amatrice bore the brunt of the quake, which is known to have killed at least 290 people.

Reporter Enda Brady has been in the town, and says many there are worried about the future.
