China earthquake: Sichuan hit by powerful quake
More than 150 people have been killed and thousands more injured in a powerful earthquake in rural areas of China's south-western province of Sichuan.
The 6.6-magnitude quake wrecked buildings and cut power in Lushan county.
Rescuers are struggling to get through to the worst-affected areas because of aftershocks and landslides.
Many people were in their beds when the earthquake struck at around 0800 local time.
