Moderate earthquake hits southwest China

BEIJING : A moderate 5.2-magnitude earthquake shook a remote region of southwest China on Sunday, seismologists said, but there were no immediate reports of damage. The earthquake struck at 5:02 pm (09:02 GMT) around 320 kilometres (200 miles) northwest of the city of Chengdu in Sichuan province, the US Geological Survey said. It hit at a shallow depth of 13 kilometres (eight miles), the USGS said. Sichuan is still rebuilding after a massive 8.0-magnitude earthquake in the region in May 2008 left nearly 87,000 people dead or missing.
