The shadows of children walking hand in hand are seen on a tent at a temporary refuge camp for earthquake survivors, early morning in Fraijanes January 14, 2009. The final death toll in Costa Rica from a 6.1 magnitude earthquake last week will likely rise to around 40 after an emergency official on Monday scaled back the number of people missing.
