Selfie craziness continues to shock media circles around the world as the latest news comes from Italy's earthquake-ravaged towns like Pescara del Tronto where tourists visiting the area are taking selfies among the ruins, receiving harsh criticism from local residents and police officers.
Photos show tourists posing in front of wrecked buildings and sharing the images on social media. "They take pictures of themselves standing in front of a destructed house smiling and then posting them on Facebook. It's distasteful," said an Italian police officer, according to a report in The Sun. Another student resident, Simone Rendina, said, "Pescara del Tronto is not a tourist attraction or a place like Disneyland - these people need to have some respect for what has happened."
The 6.2 magnitude earthquake killed 290 people and injured hundreds of others, flattening three medieval towns in central Italy and destroying private homes as well as churches and cultural treasures that were centuries old.
Catholic clerics held a Mass for survivors of the quake in a large tent under a makeshift cross constructed from two fire ladders and the helmets of rescue workers. The Sunday Mass in Arquata del Tronto was held in a tent as churches in the area have suffered extensive damage. Bishop Giovanni D'Ercole, who was in nearby L'Aquila when a major earthquake struck there in 2009, told worshippers that he knew from personal experience that "the worst is yet to come." Italy's state museums donated their proceeds to relief and reconstruction efforts in the area devastated by the earthquake.
