At least 67 people were killed and 731 injured when two earthquakes struck a remote mountainous area of southwest China.
Residents ran out of buildings screaming as the two shallow quakes hit on the border of Yunnan and Guizhou provinces an hour apart, around the middle of the day. They were followed by a string of aftershocks.
Local television reports show roads strewn with fallen bricks and rocks in Yunnan province's Yiliang county, which appears to be the worst hit area.
Authorities are sending thousands of tents, quilts and coats, to the area.
