US President Barack Obama spoke with Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi on Tuesday, to share his condolences with the victims of an earthquake in L'Aquila that killed at least 207 people. The White House said Tuesday Obama offered the Italian people with assistance if they need it. Obama said Americans also offer their condolences for the loss of loved ones, homes and businesses after Monday's devastating earthquake. The 6.3 magnitude earthquake was Italy's worst in three decades. Officials said some 10,000 to 15,000 buildings were either damaged or destroyed.
