Race to find China landslide survivors

The search for survivors has continued in China, following a landslide which has claimed the lives of at least 700 people.

More than 1,000 people are still missing in the remote, mountainous area of Gansu province.

Troops in safety suits have been spraying disinfecting chemicals on affected areas, and have tried to blast through debris which has partly dammed the Bailong river.

Tropical storm Dianmu is moving towards northern China, bringing with it the threat of more heavy rain.
