Scenes of devastation after China quake

At least 80 people are now known to have died in a series of earthquakes in south-western China, as rescuers struggle to reach remote areas.

More than 730 people were injured after the quakes hit Yunnan and Guizhou provinces on Friday, state media say.

The tremors struck mostly mountainous areas, causing landslides that blocked some roads.
