A series of strong earthquakes have struck China's western Qinghai province, toppling houses, killing at least 300 people and burying many others in a mountainous rural area, officials and state media said. The US Geological Survey reported on its website that a magnitude 6.9 temblor struck an area in southern Qinghai, near Tibet, on Wednesday morning (local time) and was followed by three quakes in the same area.
