China survivors cremate their dead



— Survivors of Wednesday's deadly earthquake in western China's Qinghai provice have begun mass cremations of the dead.



Buddhist tradition says that the dead should be left outside for vultures to eat in a so-called "sky burial", but with so many bodies to dispose of the monks have sanctioned the cremations.



Hopes of finding more survivors are fading and the rescue efforts are turning into a clean-up operation.

Dear all



Good morning to all of u and have a divine blessed day ahead…

gain, should have no importance for us.



Ours is to do the work entrusted to us by Him in… Continue
