At least ten Israelis currently believed to be in the area of Monday's 5.8 magnitude earthquake in Italy remain unaccounted for, according to the Foreign Ministry.
The strong quake hit L'Aquila, in the center of the country, early Monday morning, killing at least six people, causing buildings to collapse and sending thousands of panicked residents into the streets.
