A strong earthquake in southern China's Yunnan province has killed at least 381 people and injured more than 1,800.
The 6.5 magnitude earthquake caused some buildings, including a school, to collapse in the remote mountainous region and 181 people are still missing.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake registered at a shallow depth of less than 1 mile (1.6 km).
In 1970, a magnitude-7.7 earthquake in Yunnan killed at least 15,000 people, and a magnitude-7.1 quake in the province killed more than 1,400 in 1974. In September 2012, 81 people died and 821 were injured in a series of quakes in the Yunnan region.
In May 2008, a powerful quake in Sichuan province left nearly 90,000 people dead or missing.
