Aftershocks spark landslides at quake epicenter

BEICHUAN, China - A strong aftershock sparked landslides near the epicenter of this week’s powerful earthquake Friday, burying vehicles and again cutting off ravaged areas of central China.

Elsewhere, rescuers were still finding survivors after being buried in rubble for 96 hours, while public anger grew over the hundreds of children crushed to death in schools that collapsed in Monday’s magnitude 7.9 temblor. More than four days since the disaster, the first foreign rescue workers were allowed to the scene.

Wow. I hope that nobody else was killed by these aftershocks. Also, I find it disgusting that it took more than four days for foreign rescue works to be allowed to come and help!
