At least 400 dead as heavy quake rocks southern China

A magnitude 6.9 earthquake on Wednesday killed at least 400 people and trapped many others in collapsed houses in the mountainous Tibetan plateau in southwestern China.

A series of quakes and aftershocks caused low, brick buildings in Qinghai province’s Yushu region to collapse, residents and state media said. Troops have been dispatched to the area.
