from Deutsche Welle
An appeals court in Italy on Monday overturned manslaughter convictions against seven natural disaster experts who faced prison sentences for having allegedly falsely reassured residents ahead of a 2009 earthquake that ended up killing 309 people in the central city of L'Aquila. The court, also in L'Aquila, cleared all seven of the major charge against them, saying that no crime had been committed.
