China earthquake kills at least 300 people

China Central Television said the toll from Wednesday's earthquake had risen as rescue workers struggled to dig trapped people out in Qinghai province. The US Geological Survey said the quake measured a magnitude of 6.9. -- At least 300 people have died and others are trapped under rubble after a magnitude-6.9 earthquake struck China's Qinghai province, officials say. The powerful tremor hit remote Yushu county, 500km (310 miles) south-west of provincial capital Xining, at 0749 (2349 GMT), at a shallow depth of 10km. Chinese TV showed wrecked buildings and people scrabbling through debris. Officials ordered rescue crews and supplies to Yushu, but the area is hundreds of miles from an airport. "Soldiers have been dispatched to save the people buried in the collapsed houses," local official Huang Limin was quoted as saying by China's state news agency Xinhua.
