A strong earthquake Tuesday hit the southern area devastated by a Nov. 6 quake in which more than 930 people died, but official media reported no additional casualties.
The Xinhua News Agency said the quake, which measured 5.7 on the Richter scale, was one of the stronger aftershocks of last week's deadly earthquake in Yunnan province near the Burmese border.The area has been hit by more than 1,300 aftershocks since the Nov. 6 quake, which registered 7.6 on the Richter scale.
The Nov. 6 quake killed at least 938 people, injured more than 4,000 and left hundreds of thousands homeless, according to official figures. It affected a wide swath of remote mountain terrain inhabited mostly by farmers.
Foreign reporters have not been allowed to visit the worst-hit areas.
