Earthquakes kill dozens in southwest China
BEIJING (AP) – At least 50 people are dead after a series of earthquakes jolted a mountainous part of southwestern China, triggering landslides. Damage is preventing rescuers from reaching outlying areas and communications are disrupted.
China Central Television is showing roads littered with rocks and boulders, and pillars of dust rising over hillcrests. Local officials say hardest hit was Yiliang County in Yunnan, where most of the deaths occurred.
