At least 9 dead, 8 missing in quake-hit Chinese province
BEIJING (AP) - Heavy rains sparked landslides in an earthquake-shattered region of northwestern China, killing at least nine people and burying another eight.
The landslides struck just south of the city of Dingxi where Monday's earthquake left 95 dead, five missing and more than 800 people in hospital.
The worst landslide buried 13 people in Nanyu village and nine bodies have been recovered, the official Xinhua News Agency said on Friday. Rescue efforts are under way in the neighbouring village of Yongguang, where four people were buried and are listed as missing, the report said.
Local officials reached by phone said they had no information about dead or missing
