"Many houses collapsed. The facade of the church collapsed. By now I have felt many earthquakes. This is the strongest of my life. It was something terrible." — Marco Rinaldi, mayor of hard-hit Ussita, Italy, to Sky TG24 as officials began to assess the damage caused by a pair of strong earthquakes in the same region hit by a deadly temblor in August.


"It's going to be a very tall order for Trump to win." — Michael McDonald, a University of Florida professor who specializes in election turnout, as millions of votes that have been cast already in the U.S. presidential election point to an advantage for Hillary Clinton in critical battleground states, as well as signs of strength in traditionally Republican territory.


"This latest atrocity may be the deadliest attack on a school since the war began more than five years ago. When will the world's revulsion at such barbarity be matched by insistence that this must stop?" — UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake after the group said airstrikes in Syria's rebel-held northern Idlib province killed 22 children and six of their teachers.
