Devastating power of China floods

Rain is continuing to disrupt rescue efforts in Zhouqu county, in Gansu province in China, after a landslide on Sunday killed more than 1,100 people.

Questions are being asked if heavy logging in the area and poor urban planning is to blame for the disaster.

Footage from state television shows the force of the floodwater as a ship is swept under a bridge.
