Beijing - The confirmed death toll from a devastating earthquake in south-western China rose to about 20,000 Thursday, as troops stepped up efforts to rescue survivors and get vital aid to tens of thousands of people in isolated towns and villages. The Sichuan provincial government said it had confirmed more than 19,500 deaths following Monday's quake, while neighbouring provinces had already reported more than 300 deaths.
