The number of people killed in an earthquake in China has risen to "at least 381", according to the Associated Press.
Around 12,000 homes collapsed in Ludian, a densely populated county located in China's Yunnan province, China's official Xinhua News Agency reported.
Resident Ma Liya told the agency the streets were like a "battlefield after a bombardment" and far worse than a quake which struck the area in 2012 killing 81 people.
Chinese news channel CCTV said 1,891 were injured, three were missing and 29,400 had been evacuated.
