Makeshift hospital set up outside after China quake

Chinese rescue teams are struggling to reach survivors of a powerful 6.6-magnitude earthquake in remote hill villages in Sichuan province.

State media reported that emergency workers with sniffer dogs had now reached the most remote areas on foot.

Victims are being treated at a makeshift hospital, which has been erected outside, amid fears of possible damage from aftershocks.
