The chair of the Anglican Consultative Council, Archbishop Paul Kwong of Hong Kong, has called on Anglicans around the world to pray for the people of Italy and Myanmar after separate earthquakes struck the two communities yesterday (Wednesday). Official figures put the death toll in Italy at 247 – a figure that is expected to rise as the search operation in central Italy around the town of Amatrice continues. The death toll in Myanmar is much smaller – with four people confirmed to have died.
